Salutations. I'm Ryan, and as you can probably tell by the pictures, I'm a drummer. I started playing drums when I was around 11 years old. I've pretty much settled into a hybrid style that pulls from my biggest influences, namely John Bonham, Ian Paice, Phil Collins, Carmine Appice and Clyde Stubblefield. I also play some other instruments like keyboards, guitar and bass.

When I'm not working on tunes with these dudes, you'll probably find me listening to Stax, Motown, Led Zeppelin or 80's new wave records, playing Minecraft, or working my full-time engineering job after getting my Electrical Engineering degree from UCONN in 2022. I exclusively play Paiste Cymbals and Ludwig Drums (unless we have backline) as well as Vic Firth sticks. My setup is a healthy rotation of what's below.
