Almost 10 years experience laying down funky grooves. From local pick-up bands to playing in sold-out theaters and festivals I live to funk. From working so much with so many different types of music the best lesson I've learned is that fame is farthest from what i want, to be busy and happy playing music with great people is all the success i need.
