I'm a professional percussionist and educator based out of the Tannery Arts Center in Santa Cruz, CA. I received a B.A. in Music from Humboldt State University and a Masters of Music from Long Beach State University.

Versed in drum-set, hand drums, and Western and contemporary percussion, I've performed professionally in settings ranging from cruise-line house bands and symphony orchestras, to Hong Kong and bay area parades and festivals.

My 20 years of performance experience has given to teaching percussion-appreciation and world-music at summer camps, non-profit youth-group organizations, and after school classes.
