At the core of creativityis music.
I saved up three years of my weekly allowance to buy my first drum kit at the age of 12. As a self-taught drummer, it was my love of visiting the local music stores with my mom that built the foundation for my lifelong passion for music. Watching and listening to other drummers of all genres inspired me to start my own band at the age of 15 in my hometown of Beloit, Wisconsin. Since then I have extensively toured North America as a member in over a dozen bands most notably including I’m Not A Pilot, OAMI, Trapper Schoepp and the Shades, Rocket Cat, Mixtape, The Zach Pietrini Band, and Brett Newski. As a stage performer and session drummer in recording studios, I always strive to “play what’s right for each song” with precision, accuracy, and dynamic control. I practice daily to develop my style and versatility as a musician. Currently residing in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, I play regularly at local venues and festivals and pick up a variety of gigs along the way. I also offer custom drum tracks to producers and musicians around the world from the comfort of my basement studio. When not playing music or sitting in front of a computer at work, you will find me making a strong cup of coffee, hitting the gym, or most likely spending time with my wife and two children.
