Influences: 

I am influenced by many artists. Some of my top inspirations are Steve Jordan, JJ Johnson, Jojo Mayer, Tony Royster Jr., Buddy Rich and Benny Greb. In addition to drummers and percussionists, many vocalists and guitar players influence my drumming as well. Some of these Include John Mayer, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stevie Wonder and many modern producers.

We asked...Why Gretsch?: 

"Since I can remember, Gretsch drums were always THAT DREAM KIT I had always thought about. The incredible Gretsch sound was the sound that resonated in my mind at all times. The quality of the drums is untouchable. Aside from the sound, you are met with the legendary roster and family environment."

Advice to Aspiring Musicians: 

"Practice your craft. Progression isn't something that happens overnight. ALSO, play because you love to play and because it's fun. Always attempt to find that groove that gives you that sense of fulfillment and reminds you constantly of why you love to play."
