I've been playing drums for 13 years. I started playing in my high school bands after playing saxophone prior to high school. I went to community college where I played in jazz band and in the pit for many musical theatre productions. Throughout this time, I played in local rock bands but nothing serious came of any of them. I moved to Seattle in 1994 to attend the University of Washington. I started out there as a jazz studies major but decided not to pursure my degree in music performance. I played in the Husky Marching Band drumline for three years and I played in the band 'Stickman Stepchild' for a couple of years until the band took a hiatus that has not ended. In July of 2000, I joined the band 'Rayburn' with which I am currently playing.
