The video page includes a couple dozen performances from various projects. If you are interested in having me record for you this site can make that process easy. Send me your files and I can send back real drums, raw, or ready to plugin stems for your project. There will also be loop packages available soon.

I give drum lessons in Los Angeles four days a week. See my calendar for more details if you are interested. The Store has a few dozen play along songs, music, books and soon; loops and video lessons, even some free stuff if you’re a registered member.

My studio is available for tracking, voice over and overdubs. See the Studio page for more details.

The Blog has free lessons, lots of posts and is updated regularly. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram and join my mailing list to stay on top of what happening here.
