I have been playing drums for 17 years. In the past year, more than all of the previous 16 years combined, I have developed more skills, expanded my potential, finely tuned my abilities, gained incredible control and have seen exponential progress, all after I began taking lessons from Animals As Leaders drummer, Matt Garstka. I'm finally right where I want to be. I play DW drums (with various setups), but I work with a 6 pc, Lexus white, lacquer finish shells with black chrome hardware accompanied by 14 cymbals (crashes, splashes, several China's & stacks). I don't drink/smoke and I have rehearsal space with guitar/bass amps and a PA. I enjoy playing most genres, but my special gifts lye in Progressive, Metal & Hard Rock.
