Thank you...
I would like to thank my family and all of the people that I’ve played and worked with over the past 38 years. 
My drum influences Howard Rolle, Buddy Rich, Sammy Davis Jr., Lionel Hampton, Ricky Williams, Max Roach, Clyde Stubblefield, Billy Cobham, Steve Gadd, Harvey Mason, Bobby Craig, Ricky Mangum, The New York Lancers, Bernard Davis, Buddy Williams, Dennis Chambers, Aaron Spears, Harry Vaughn.  Some you know and some you don’t. Every person and every experience in life is important. Some will stand out more than others but there is a positive lesson in each and every encounter. 
You are all important to me. People are important to me. 
The world is important to me.

“You don't have to do no soloin', brother; just keep what you got. Don't turn it loose! 'Cause it's a mutha."  You can keep your fancy fills - this is about the groove.” .
