Biography

I began drumming because my Grandpa was a drummer and started showing me drummers like Gene Krupa and Buddy rich. After months of drumming on a homemade practice pad, my parents finally got me a drum set for Christmas when I was 16 and I have been going strong ever since. A short while later I started playing for my church worship team and started my first rock band with some friends from church.
I played a lot with my church and eventually preformed on two records with our praise team and even engineered/mixed the second album.
Recording began to be a big interest and that really worked well with my passion of drumming.

I followed my new found passion for recording and attended "The Institute of Production and Recording" in Minneapolis, MN to study studio production and recording engineering.
After school I returned back home and started my own studio, where I recorded my different projects and friends.

I began to get into metal and heavier music. And after several projects and bands, my friends and I started our current band "By His Blood".
We have been going strong and working to expand our sound and force our selves to grow and improve.
I am currently finishing up or latest album as producer and engineer. Make sure you you watch out for new things form "By His Blood".
