Originally from Michigan, I 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, MA to join the original dance-funk band HyGyNx. 

Since then, I have been honored to have played a variety of music styles with some great bands, and I have performed on over 24 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.
