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.
Since, I have been honored to have played a variety of music styles with some great bands and perform on over 20 albums from some of the best musicians here in the Northeast. I also get the chance to perform with my brother in an original duet project called The Croad Brothers (Bryan Croad) - some tunes Bryan plays an eight-string guitar (Novax)...very cool. Check him out, he is amazing.
I have studied with Bob Gullotti (amazing drummer and great teacher) and am constantly inspired by so many incredible drummers that are playing today.
Thanks for visiting.
