The Fail Safe Project

What started as a young guy desperately wanting to be a guitar player turned into a long standing passion for the drums. I started out playing guitar with a buddy back in 1996/97 and quickly found out that playing without a drummer was no fun. So I bought my first kit and started playing and that was it for the guitar. I fell in love with the drums. For the last 15 years I have been playing and touring in various bands. Some of the projects I have been a part of include Holotype, 2 Headed Chang, Oceans of Red and With Scars To Prove. Through out my playing career I have played anything from rock, metal and funk. I currently play for Spokane, Wa based The Fail Safe Project. Last winter we inked a deal with New Jersey based record label Eclipse Records. Our album is set to release in Jan 2014. We currently have a few tracks playing on various rock station in WA, OR, ID, MT, and UT. Right now I currently play 14in Extreme hi hats, 8in Extreme splash, 19 and 20in Extreme crashes, 20in Gospel ride and 18in Extreme china.
