ABOUT

Percussionist since the 5th grade, I continued all through High School, playing in band in the drumline, orchestra, and playing set in the jazz band. After High School I immediately begin teaching drumlines through my instructor, and continue on until today.
During my twenties and thirties I played in multiple performing bands in the genre of, punk, rock, funk/R&B and jazz in LA, Orange County and the Inland Empire.
Recently I am teaching at Mt. Carmel High School in Poway and 2 others in the Anaheim area and am interested in getting back to performance again, after a long tenure of creating & instructing.
I am an extremely dedicated musician who is organized, has chops, is full of enthusiasm for the process of making music and can't wait to get back on stage.
