I have been playing drums for over twenty years, and have performed, recorded, and toured with various artists in Durham Region and Toronto. My musical journey started at the piano, and eventually moved to drums. I have taken various lessons along the way, including some with Al Cross, Joaquin Nunez Hidalgo, Aubrey Dale, and more.
I play regularly with The Micronite Filters, and other projects such as Jimmy Bowskill, The Radiophobics, and more. I am active in the Durham Region music community performing with multiple bands, and as a founding member of Get Bent Records independent music label.
In 2009 I traveled to Cuba to partake in a week-long drum retreat and festival. The traditional Cuban conga and dance lessons, along with the deep musical vibrations of the people and land, helped me to awaken my inner rhythms. We all have our own inner rhythms ingrained within us and I believe if we learn to tap into that with patience and practice, anyone can learn. Below are some examplesof music I have worked on.
