ABOUT

I am primarily a percussionist and hand drummer (djembe, djuns, etc), but I also sing and play keyboards. Very solid sense of rhythm.

I just love to make music, from rehearsed to completely improvisational. The style is less important to me than the intention.

I am always looking for opportunities to sit in with musicians/bands, try something new, add a little percussive spice.
