Background

I am originally from Michigan and started playing drums when I was 14.  I studied with a local drum instructor (Mark Meyers...great drummer) and began gigging with rock and jazz bands when I was 16.  While still in Michigan, I did some studio projects and played in the pit orchestra for the shows Grease, Godspell, and Hair.  I went on to study at Musicians Institute (PIT) in CA, then I relocated to Boston to join the original dance-funk band HyGyNx. 

At present, I still do some studio work (from time to time) and play with a variety of groups covering acoustic rock, contemporary, funk, R&B/soul, country, and rockabilly.  I also get the chance to perform with my brother in an original duet project called The Croad Brothers (jazz/fusion) in which some of the tunes Bryan plays an eight-string guitar (Novax)...very cool.  

I have studied with Bob Gullotti (amazing drummer and great teacher) and am extremely blessed to be able to perform with some of the best musician here in the Northeast.  I am constantly inspired by so many of the incredible drummers that are playing today.     

Thanks for visiting.
