On The Greatest Showman film



I had the pleasure of working on this beautiful film. I recorded some drums, percussion and lots of unconventional and improvised instruments. That was a super creative and inspiring session at Fox Studios Foley room. Go watch the film!


Patriots Day film score




I’m happy to be a part of this beautiful and super strong film. I had the pleasure of making unusual beats and sounds on this film with a true artist and sound designer Dror Mohar. Go watch!


Hi everyone! I had a few great months behind me touring, recording and writing new music.

I had the pleasure working with an amazing Yemeni/Morrocan band called “Yemen Blues”.  I also toured with Tal Wilkenfeld and the band in the US and Canada. Then I headed to Africa and Europe with Macy Gray for a run and writing sessions right after.  Now, I’ve finally finished my recent project featuring the Acholi Musicians of Uganda and I’m very happy to share it with you on my Music Page!


On tour supporting “The Who” with Tal Wilkenfeld

Currently on tour supporting The Who with Tal. This is a great experience, I’m so glad to be watching this amazing band every night. Going from playing arenas one night to playing clubs the next is what makes this tour very dynamic and fun.

Thanks to Johnny Craviotto and Remo for the great support on this tour

At the Garden in Boston, MA last week


In the past few months I’ve been touring, recording and writing with bass extraordiner Tal Wilkenfeld. Absolutely fun working with Tal especially as a drummer.  We ended 2015 with a show in L.A. with her band and some amazing guests such as Benmont Tench and Steve Ferrone from The Heart Breakers, Jackson Browne, drums master Vinne Colaiuta, Brad Wilk from Rage Against The Machine, Alain Johannes and more.

While I’m back in town, I spend most of my days recording drums and percussion at my studio here in Los Angeles.

Happy New Year!


Back from winter tour with Macy Gray

I had a few great months on the road with Macy and the band in Europe, UK, Japan and Australia.
Heres a cool review we got last month in Australia.

In the next few months I’ll be collaborating with some of the best artists I know and co-write new music together.
