ABOUT

I recently graduated from the University of North Florida with a degree in Jazz studies for applied drumset. At UNF I studied drumset with Jazz great Danny Gottlieb and also I studied percussion with Kevin Garry and Charlotte Mabrey, who are the percussionist in the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra. In middle school and high school I won many music competitions, participated in All-State Bands, District Jazz and Honors Bands, All-County Honors Bands, and received superior awards at Solo and Ensemble. After high school I decided to major in music and drumming has become my whole life ever since. I play many different styles of music such as jazz, rock, funk, or latin. I'm always looking foward to playing with great musicians and playing with different groups/bands. If you're interested in working with me or you are looking for drum lessons just send me a message.
