Drumming.

A drummer for over two decades, I've played in a wide variety of original bands in NYC and CT (currently, Western Estates).  I aim to provide a combination of power, finesse, and musicality without being predictable.  I feel that my greatest strength is creating musically-interesting drum parts that serve the song. 

You can listen to examples of my playing within the music player on this page.  I'm also available to record live drum tracks for your project.
