I am a blind drummer who received my first full drum set at five years of age, and havenít looked back since. Born prematurely in the spring of 1995, I lost total vision at the age of seven but didnít let that stop me. Over the years I has played in a Christian rock band, written my own music, recorded drum tracks for a number of friends, and played in multiple church bands.
I currently live in St. Louis Missouri with my wife, Christy, and our senior orange tabby cat we call the eternal kitten. Although I developed continuous migraines in 2013, I find that playing drums rarely increases the pain, so I continue to play at home and for clients who request work while I wait for an opportunity to join a band again. I also do audio mixing work for clients upon request.
I will play pretty much any music genre except for rap and modern pop. Some of the bands whose music I enjoy playing drums to most often are Dream Theater, REO Speedwagon, Chicago, and For King and Country.
