"ETHNICALLY BEWILDERED." Italian? Greek? Croat? Latino? French? Afgan? Proud to report that I've been mistaken for all of the above... and used it to my advantage.

I've played drums on and off for 20ish years in various covers and originals bands in Dunedin, Queenstown, Scotland, and Australia. I've performed hard rock, funk, blues, jazz, traditional Scots and Irish music, Celtic rock and classic British, Aussie and Kiwi pub covers - I just get a kick out of entertaining the crowd and seeing people dig the music. All my own good quality gear. Easygoing but professional attitude. Perhaps unusually for a drummer, I don't drink when I'm performing (something about alcohol makes me lose sticks at high speed), so I'm pretty reliable for rehearsals and for the whole gig (including pack down). My day job as a brand designer also tends to come in handy for promotional bits and pieces.
