Terry was born and raised in San Fernando Valley, California. Graduated high school and earned a degree in commercial art and advertising. He discovered that he wanted to play drums and pursue his love for art and music.
When Terry was 15 he had this creative idea, but never thought it would amount to anything. He decided to move to Springfield, Missouri to get away from the fast lane in Los Angeles.
Terry has played with many people and all types of music, but always kept a 9-5 job. He was an art director at an advertising company for 12 years. After all those years working, he still kept his creative idea in his mind. In 2006 he decided to try and let people see his special art.
Since 2006 Terry has completed nearly 100 creative pieces. He found a special way to combine art and drums. To use them as furniture for home or office. Terry has worked with companies to use pieces for advertising, promotions, charity, memorials and gifts.
One of his favorite creations is the "Memory Box". It captures a musician's career, a family's milestones, even a favorite sports team or school memorabilia.
Terry was commissioned by the Johnny Mercer family to do a unique piece. He has donated numerous pieces to charity organizations, radio auctions for some amazing causes.
