ABOUT MIKE

Thanks for checking out my page! I have been playing the drums since 2000. Over the years, I have developed the skills to enjoy playing a wide variety of genres including progressive metal, folk rock, alternative, electronica, and jazz.

Located in the SF bay area, I am available for lessons, recording sessions, gigs, and drum-tech services. Shoot me a message and lets get the conversation started.
