Some of my greatest influences range from 80’s rock, prog metal, jazz to pop. I draw inspirations from some of my favorites: Steve Smith (Journey), Sting and all his drummers, Morgan Rose (Sevendust), John Bonham, Stewart Copeland, Gavin Harrison, Keith Carlock and Vinnie Colaiuta. I have been playing drums for over 20 years. I have had several write ups, even being nominated for the Hartford Advocates’ reader’s poll for top drummer. I am endorsed by Soultone (cymbals), and Silverfoxx (percussion), current project Civil Drone that I am very excited about. I am working with singer, and Ct. X factor semifinalist Gino Burgio, whom I have collaborated with for over 10 years. I have opened for national acts, including: Sevendust, Candlebox, Halestorm, , Fly Leaf, Drowning pool, Days of the New, Crossfade and many more. Cover Project: The Path
