A little about me...

Currently playing full time for Resistful Misfit, A high energy original rock band, playing Denver Metro area clubs and venues. Keeping in the realms of Rock, Blues, and Funk with a touch of Rockabilly. Loud and lawless - true rockin' stage presence and showmanship. I've been playing percussion since I was 4. I've also picked up wind (flute, piccolo, recorder), and reed (sax). I've never played strings though. I love percussion and have only just started stretching my limits and writing lyrics and singing them. I've played in bands that ranged in genre's from acoustic blues, christian rock, punk, ska and progressive rock. The only thing I haven't tried my hand at is rap, and only because that's mostly electronic or no enjoyable to me. On top of all that I'm a US Army veteran and a father of 6 fantastic children







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is part of my daily therapy. I have what I call my M&M's. Music and Martial arts. As long as I have my M&M's, I can get through any day. Music has also been a means of common ground with my family. My children have all taken up music in one form or another, and without any prompting from me. My youngest son taking up Violin, which has totally blown me away.

What is your music dream?

To get my/our original music out there for more to enjoy - a generic answer right? I keep my dreams simple right now.... I'd love to just make a living playing music. Nothing grandiose... just to make what I make as an engineer would be a great start.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Change starts at home. There are some things that my parents taught me, my father in particular, that I've tried to pass on to my children. Having discussions on morals and values, and how to disagree with each other and still love one another.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Your mama don't dance by Loggins and Massena. I still remember singing this from the back seat of the station wagon. The whole car just swayin, as we all sang along... my dad nailing that bass part.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Jeff Beck, In This Moment, Black Sabbath, Uriah Heap, Led Zeppelin, Robin Trower, Johnny and Edgar Winter; Scatterbrain,

What inspires you to make music?

Each and every moment on this big blue marble.... this tiny spec in the grand scheme of the universe. Oh the vastness of it all!

What is the message you want to send with your music?

That's OK to wear your heart on your sleeve... That it's OK to be different, live your dreams, just respect one another as you do it.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Amazing and very much alive!

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Club owners not giving musicians their due. Especially non cover bands!

What do you think of Drooble?

I think the concept is a great idea. It's why I signed up in the first place! Now I'm trying to do my part in helping it grow.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Not having enough time to load in or out of a gig...

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

As much as possible, by going to shows and engaging on social media.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

An amazing amount of patience

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
