ABOUT

I started playing drums in fourth grade, switched to percussion and graduated with a BA in music at Naropa Institute (has since become accredited) in 1995 where I was introduced to traditional Marimba and Mbira music from Zimbabwe, as well as traditional Cuban, African and Hatian percussion, all of which I still play today.
I have studied with Rey Gonzalez, Sandy Perez, Lazaro Galaraga from Cuba, as well as Chris Berry, Tute Chigomba, Cosmas Magaya, Musekiwa Chingodza, Forward Kwenda, Garikayi Tirikoti, and many other musicians from Zimbabwe.
I have a strong background in music theory and music appreciation.
