I am currentley a student at Columbia College Chicago pursuing a jazz studies degree. I am a versitile player. I can play any style (jazz, rock, latin, funk, world and hand percussion). I have plenty of gear (rock/fusion kit, bop kit, and various hand drums) and transportation. For jazz gigs, I know many tunes. I am easy to work with, reliable, and a quick learner.
