ABOUT

I've been playing drums since age 7 and I've decided music is something I want to pursue full time. I will not be in the Boston area for much longer, as I am headed to Colorado to study music, but I would love to meet like-minded musicians to connect and/or jam with. If I sound like someone you might want to talk to then don't be shy!

My gigging experience is very small, as I'm only 18, but I have about 3 years experience from playing with various school/school-related bands.
