In November 2015 the awesome people over at Nashvillethreesixty did a great write-up on my experience as a drummer. If you have some time go check it out here.


I played and helped engineer the drums on Jason Michael Carroll’s 2015 album What Color Is Your Sky. Head on over and check it out! The single “God Only Knows” climbed to #28 on Music Row’s Breakout Chart. I’m drumming on the whole album except “Close Enough” and “Painting Pictures”.
