I studied with Dennis Coyman and played my first gig in 1963. A I enjoyed a semi-pro career doing studio work and off-Broadway production in the 70's. During this time I wrote and recorded a song that was turned into a short that ran on HBO for 8 seasons. I studied with Gary Chester in the early 80's and worked with a contract orchestra. A serious medical problem interrupted things from '94 to '02. After moving to a warmer climate I was able to restart and now teach and perform on the "Suncoast" of Florida.
My first quality kit were Ludwigs, then Rogers and Gretsch, then Mapex, and now I'm back to vintage Ludwigs. Cymbals are mainly pre-ink Zildjian and sticks have been Regal Tip from day one.
