Jeff grew up in Greenwood, Indiana and went to Center Grove High School.  In his late teens, Jeff moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music.  He was fortunate to spend his last year there as part of the esteemed 'Yo-Team Ensemble'.  "Berklee was an unbelivable experience for me.  I played with some of the most amazing musicians in the world.  The list is so long, it wouldn't fit on the page.  Berklee alums are everywhere in this business.  You can't hardly listen to a record or watch an artist today without seeing someone we went to school with.  I'm still friends with most of these folks and it has made the music business a lot smaller."
Jeff left Boston for Nashville,  and since relocating he has been playing drums with and often times band leading for a remarkable list of recording artists on the road as well as in the studio.
