I never leave home without: forgetting something

Interesting Fact: I served as a Police Officer for 15 years including 10 years as a Deputy Sheriff with the Harris County Sheriff's Office in Houston, Texas.


I started playing drums long before I even knew how to spell DRUMS. After my parents got tired of me dragging pots and pans out from under the sink and banging dents in them with whatever I could find, the finally bought me my first drum kit from Montgomery Wards.

I performed my first live appearance when I was about 13 years old with my Dad's 50's rock band, "Yesterday". I worked on several projects and recording sessions with him all the way through school until I graduated and wondered off into the sunset to chase my dreams. In addition to that, I performed in my Jr. Hi and High School bands, playing just about everything in the percussion lineup until I settled on the quads. (I still love em!) On my off time I played with several high school bands with most of my influence from legendary groups like Journey, Boston, Motley Crue, and so on. As my musical interests grew, I learned to appreciate other types of music. I began to play with jazz and big band projects, theater and musical ensembles, and eventually I ventured into the Country market where I found my home.

I have performed and recorded with such great Texas Country Music acts such as the Mel Garrett Band, Joe Kory and Renegade, Tim Nichols and Common Cents, and now, BadLandz (formerly Derringer). While I have been with this band, we have shared the stage with such great Country acts like Diamond Rio, Mark Wills, Mark Chesnutt, Doug Stone, Tracy Lawrence, Chris Ledoux, Daryl Worley, Blake Shelton, Perfect Stranger, Merle Haggard, Ty Herndon, Lonestar, Ricochet, Larry Gatlin, Dan Seals, Eric Heathery, Kenny Chesney, Randy Travis, Trisha Yearwood, Gary Stewart, Neal McCoy, Tanya Tucker, Sammy Kershaw, Alabama... and more.

Currently, BadLandz is busy in the studio wrapping up the first CD under the name BadLandz and will be scheduling a tour in support of the CD soon after release. We already have a couple of very serious Record deal prospects. This is going to be a hell of a ride. For everything BadLandz, check out our web site at www.badlandz.net .
