I'm a drummer, percussionist, soprano saxophonist, composer, recording artist, and record producer. Originally from Iowa, I live near Baltimore, Maryland, and play primarily in Baltimore, Washington, DC and New York. I've made two recordings as a leader: 2015's The Ruthless Shapes of Paradise (named one of the Best Recordings of 2015 by Avant Music News), and 2014's Conversations (which was nominated by the Washington Area Music Association as Jazz Recording of the Year).
I have performed and/or recorded with Michael Formanek, Dave Ballou, Tony Martucci, Anthony Pirog, Susan Alcorn, Jeff Antoniuk, Todd Marcus, and many others.
I currently perform solo concerts, with my own trios, and with various other ensembles.
For six years I was the drummer for BSQ (the Bob Schwartz Quartet).
