Update time! The last few months have been full of amazing experiences and awesome shows! It's been a privilage traveling all over the country (and the world) with David Cook, and the rest of the band. We have played to some amazing crowds. A few highlights from this summer include doing American Idol, playing Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on July 4th, and touring Asia. (Check the "Media" section for vids from some of the shows!) I also kept busy with Life Down Here playing festivals in Nashville, San Francisco, and Phoenix among other places. October will prove to busy as well, as I'll be doing a SoCal tour of sorts with LDH, and a short NorCal run with Americana/Folk duo Jamestown Revival. On the recording side of things, I was fortunate to be able to play on former Columbia Records artist (and Prince bassist) Andre Cymone's new solo record. It was an amazing experience, and a privalege to track with some phenomenal musicians from Madonna, Macy Gray, and Rufus Wainright's touring bands. Check the "Calendar" section for an updated show schedule, and the "Media" section for new pics and videos!

2012 has been a blast thus far, and is looking brighter still. Starting at the end of April, I will be taking over the drum chair for Platinum selling rock artist, and season 7 American Idol winner, David Cook. David’s band is incredible, and I am honored to be stepping into such an amazing and humbling situation. Some of our first shows include opening for Bon Jovi at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Vegas, and an appearance on American Idol.

I had great year in 2011, and am looking forward to an even better 2012!
I've recently started playing with VH1 "Step Up And Rock" contest winner, Wendy Starland, and have some great things planned with her this year. I will also begin playing shows with folk duo, Jamestown Revival, starting with a residency at The Hotel Cafe in January. I'm still keeping busy with NRG Artists' Life Down Here, and will continue to play shows with them throughout 2012. I'm also excited to play at the Musicians Institute Booth at NAMM this year on Friday Jan 20th from 3 to 4PM.

I've been super busy with Life Down Here the past few months. I recently recorded drums for their debut record at NRG Studios with platinum selling Producer Jay Baumgardner. We also shot a music video in Las Vegas for the first promo track. They have some exciting gigs coming up in the month of July including headlining the 4th of July Boulder city Damboree Festival in Vegas.
I recently played a sold out show at the Ford Amphitheater in Los Angeles with Lindsey Yung for 5th annual Kollaboration Acoustic event. In addition, I've been playing locally with Kelley McGrath, Kim Divine, Darling Nikki, Jake Coco and Caitlin Hart, and Black Kettle.

2011 has been a great year so far! I've continued to gig with original artists Kim Divine, Kelly McGrath, Julie the Band, and Darling Nikki. As of late, I've also done some great gigs with Singer songwriters Lindsey Yung, Lindsey Harper, Caitlin Hart, and Jake Coco. I've been busy working as a session player for Way Up Records/DSD Productions, and have recently recorded for Caitlin Mann and Aaron.
Julie the Band has been in pre production for their new record due out in the fall of 2011, and I'm looking forward to recording the drum tracks shortly.
