ABOUT

I am a 44 year old super funky drummer and percussionist looking to create hard latin funk. I attended The Drummers Collective in NYC in 2005 and have been practicing and gigging in NYC and now DC. One of my passions is bboying and the music that bboy DJ's spin for the dancers. I would love to create music that DJ's would want to use for their sets.
