About Me

Honored to grow up right here in the N.Y.C. metropolitan area at the end of the Funk era, through the Golden Age of Hip Hop, as well as during the resurgence of the funky Hard Bop sounds of Neo-Bop Jazz of the 90's, through all of the wonderful Jazz-Funk and Neo Soul artists of the early 2000’s through today.

I'm always looking forward to playing with a small combo of talented musicians to create original Jazz-Funk, Neo Soul or Native Tongue style Hip Hop tracks with a vocalist or M.C., that offers original material, so we can continue to make N.Y.C.'s Jazzy yet Funky heartbeat.

INFLUENCES John Jabo Starks, Clyde Stubblefield, Ahmir Questlove Thompson, Harvey Mason, and Montez Coleman to name a few.

EQUIPMENT My minimal, pro-busking Gretsch 3-Piece Catalina Club Jazz drum kit with my cymbals comprised of my 13-inch A Series New Beat Hi-Hat pair, 20-inch FX Series Oriental Crash of Doom, and my 20-inch K Constantinople Series Medium Ride
