Ive been playing the drums since i was 4 years old. I got my first kit at the age of 5 and have never stopped!I took music in school for 4 years to gather all my rudiments and to learn how to read music.I got into my first band at the age of 14 and have had the pleasure of playing and recording with many bands of all genres in my native area of Southern California.Some of my influences are Peter Criss,John Bonham,Neil Peart, Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl,Steve Machine Gun Smith,Bill Ward,AlexVan Halen ,Dave Lombardo,Scott Rockenfield,Clive Burr,Tommy Aldridge and Nicko Mcbrain just to name a few,and the list goes on!Ive played many different types of cymbals and was lucky to find the ultimate cymbals when i found Soultone, from another artist within the Soultone family.I am currently playing with the band BLACK RAIN A Showcase to Ozzy Osbourne And Black Sabbath-We are gearing up for a European tour May 30th and we are tearin up all the live stages we can get our hands on!If you would like to check us out were on myspace,facebook and reverberation to check out some video footage!!!!!!!!!!PS:Special thanks to Iki Levy!and Tomer for all your help with helping me with my cymbal arsenal!
