I'm originally from Iowa, but now live near New Windsor, Maryland. I play in Baltimore, Washington, DC, and New York.

I have released three CDs to date:

The X Trio: Sunday Dust, 2018

The Ruthless Shapes of Paradise, 2015

Conversations, 2014

Here are some of the people I have performed and/or recorded with: Michael Formanek, Dave Ballou, Tony Martucci, Todd Marcus, Denman Maroney, Derrick Michaels, Anthony Pirog, Susan Alcorn, Oscar Noriega, Jeff Antoniuk, and many others.

I currently perform with my working band, The X Trio, as well as solo, and with other groups.

For six years I was the drummer for  the swingin' BSQ (the Bob Schwartz Quartet).
