ABOUT

To keep things short, I have been playing music for 7 years and performing for about 6 years. I enjoy performing live with other musicians playing original, creative music. Playing in bands has always been a joy to me, and for most of my career of musicianship thus far. I’ve been in bands ever since I started playing music with cover bands, then worked my way up to playing in original bands. I am extremely passionate about playing music, that is why I have been playing/performing ever since. I am a diligent person, whether it comes to practicing, timeliness, and commitment, I am your “dude” so to speak. I primarily play/perform drums and that’s my main, go-to instrument. I do hand percussion as well, and I play guitar decently as well. I have played guitar on and off for 7 years and drums (self taught) for about 4 years. Like I said earlier, I prefer drumming and am best at drumming. Thank you for reading my “brief” description of a little bit about me. Kudos to you!
