I was influenced by the sounds of rock and jazz in my childhood. These unique styles of music gave me the inspiration to become a musician and drummer. I am an extremely versatile drummer and am known for being able to perform comfortably in many styles of music from symphonic to jazz, rock, funk and electronic. I have had the opportunity to teach and perform in the USA and Europe.
During these travels, I directed various bands and large ensembles and conducted private lessons. I am also a composer and expert in electronic percussion, often supplying drum and percussion tracks for compositions worldwide. I am currently based in Melbourne, Australia where I perform on a regular basis with many leading artists and maintains a busy teaching schedule.
