Currently I perform and teach drum set in Quincy, MA at DiCenso’s Drum Shop and White’s Music in Attleboro, MA.
My formative training includes Classical Percussion study as a teen with Jeff Grubbs in Syracuse, NY and drum set study with Phil Ferraro (Watertown, NY); through college @ SUNY Fredonia with Kay Stonefelt and Louis Marino (Buffalo, NY); and a few years with Boston drumming guru Dave DiCenso.
I currently study marimba with the formidable Sylvie Zakarian and also play other percussion like cajon or frame drum (Middle Eastern).
Some original artists for whom I have played or recorded include: Holly Cieri, Reju, Steve Goodsell, Fragile Alex, Bill Bracken, The Flux, Grooveworks. Currently I perform with flamenco guitarist Steven Spungin.
