I started playing drums in high school and began performing in public soon after. In 2008 I decided to pursue music professionally and started freelancing and performing with various bands in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC.
In 2009 I traveled to Austin, TX for SXSW, performing outside of the DMV area for the first time. Later in 2009 I began studies at The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music in NYC and in 2010 I began traveling the east coast on a regular basis performing for large crowds.
I graduated from The New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music with a BA in Jazz Studies in 2011 and continued touring the east coast, midwest, and the south with various bands.
In 2017 I relocated to California and began performing all around the bay area. In 2018 I toured Europe for the first time with world renowned blues players Mitch Kashmar and Junior Watson. I am currently performing and teaching full time in the south bay. I teach drums, beginning bass, and beginning piano.
I have been playing drums since 2002, began performing a year later, and began to pursue a professional career in music in 2008, which I have been committed to ever since.
I began teaching music in 2006 and have since been teaching students of all ages in one on one and group settings privately and with various schools.

We are thrilled with his progress and teaching.+ Read More
