I live in Maine USA, and I hit things with sticks. The last bit is something I say often when asked what kind of instrument I play or how I play a particular drum groove. My journey of being a musician didn't start with with playing drums, it started with playing bass guitar in 2005. My interest didn't last very long as soon though once I found out hitting drums is tremendously more fun (no offense to you bassists out there ;} ). I started getting a grasp of how to play drums by 2006 with my interest being primarily in Technical Death Metal and although I have 14 years of self-taught playing experience, I didn't really know what direction or 'style' of drumming I wanted to aim for until about a year ago. My primary interest in genre is Grind/Math/Tech/Death Metal, specifically anything within the area of fast paced technical playing involving polyrhythms, intricate time signatures, split second changes in tempo, and especially blast beats (I love blast beats). I'm always open to learning anything new, thrive on working towards expanding and tightening techniques I utilize, and constantly trying to better myself as a player both mentally and physically. With Soultone Cymbals being gracious enough to give me an opportunity in joining a vastly growing community of drummers and musicians I believe I'll be able to accomplish my goals while continuing my grind with hard work and dedication, and I am eternally grateful for this chance I never expected to happen.
I've played for a Brutal Death Metal band called PUTRESCINE and a Grunge-Core band Catharsis from 2006-2007, then created the Tech-DeathGrind band Taxicab Dismemberment (TCDM for short) in May of 2008. I started taking on other projects playing in various Metal bands between 2016 and 2018, then started the Death/Grind/Hardcore band Where They Hide in July of 2018. Taxicab Dismemberment's driving force is hard hitting fast paced technical death metal with a heavy side, has shared stages, bars, VFWs, basements, living rooms, and outside decks with dozens of bands both local and national in New England, opened for the 2010 Summer Slaughter Tour at The Palladium in Worcester MA, put out a LP called 'Like Surgeons, Not Mechanics', and an EP that is two demos in one called '2012 - 2013 Demo'. Where They Hide is a blended mixture of Hardcore, Death Metal, and Grind while switching between the genres literally between riffs, has played dozens of shows, basements, VFWs, and fests that were primarily local DIY within NH, ME, and MA while also playing our favorite venues The Dover Brickhouse in Dover, NH and Geno's Rock Club in Portland, ME, and released a demo called 'Back To Business'.
