I began my career playing drums with groups in the Baltimore area such as J. Roddy Walston and The Business, Judd and Maggie, June Star, and Challenge Club. After moving to Portland, OR in 2009 I played, toured, or recorded with Lost Lander (w/ Matt Sheehy of EL VY), Ramona Falls (w/Brent Knopf of Menomena), Mnemonic Sounds, Adam Sweeney, Laura Gibson, and Sean Flinn.
I’ve supported and toured with the Helio Sequence, Phantogram, Bishop Briggs, Little Dragon, The War on Drugs, Blind Pilot, and others, and have toured and performed in every major city in the US, as well as Canada, Germany, Russia, France, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and Turkey. I studied drums formally with Grant Menfee (Berklee, Towson U) and John Thomakos (PIT) in Baltimore, and more recently with Dom Famularo in NYC. I’ve also taught private drum and percussion lessons since 2006.
