I have been performing since the age of 15. I started with Zildjian cymbals and are still with them. I signed with Zildjian in 1983 and have enjoyed my relationship with the company ever since. I was added to the stick roster in the early 2000's. I have performed and recorded over 100 albums and was a co-founder of the jazz trio The Fringe in 1972. Some recent recordings are with Joe Lovano, Dave Liebman, Esperanza Spaulding, Kenny Werner and Scott Colley.
