This is the room where I teach:

This is the drumset I use at most of my shows. I have a few others but this is one sees the most amount of work these days. Tama Starclassic with Zildjian A Custom cymbals and whatever snare drum I feel like playing that night :-)

Drumming has taken me all over the world! Here is the Heineken Music Festival in Beijing, China:

Holy cow how many roadies do I need here?

We're on Chinese TV!!!!!

It's hard to see here but there were a line of Chinese army guys standing at attention in front of the stage.

Here I am tuning drums in Switzerland with a Swiss Army Knife......Sonor drums have a different kind of drum key I quickly found out while touring Europe.

At the NAMM show one year I got to hang out with some of my favorite drummers!

Kenny Aronoff and Kirk Covington!

Bill Bruford and Gregg Bissonette!

Pat Torpey and Simon Phillips!

My two favorite bass players Bootsy Collins and Lee Sklar!

We opened for Delbert McClinton in Holland. He was really cool.

Jeff Healy was filming a telethon down the street in Vancouver BC and he came by and sat in with our band!

The Jim Mesi Band!

Here are my first two drumsets. A Ludwig Vistalite and the old red Tama Crestars!

As a drummer you need a really cool ride to drive to the gigs. Here is my old truck and my new truck!

Someday I'll be driving this to the gigs......Now if only I can figure out how to fit my drums in it

Thought you might enjoy some pictures I found lying around:

My dad and I climbed Mt Hood in Oregon two years in a row. I celebrated my birthday on the summit one of those years.
