Born: February 28, 1954 Primary Instrument: Drums
I'm a percussionist and composer in Chicago, IL. My main interest is all forms of jazz, along with contemporary classical music and many forms of non-Western music. I mainly perform around the Chicago area, primarily with my own ensembles playing my own music.
