With over 15 years behind the kit, I have gained much experience in studio recording, live performance and touring. I am comfortable playing in a wide variety of settings, and pride myself in being particularly efficient in a studio environment, where required to play to a click. I am able to learn new material quickly and accurately.
I am comfortable performing in front of an audience and I'm easy to get along with in the studio or on tour! So give me a shout if you need a drummer with a professional approach and high standards!
