I've been a drummer and percussionist for over 20 years. I've studied African rhythms with Ghanan drummers, and have taken many years of tabla lessons at the Ali Akbar College.

I began studying music when I was 10, first in my elementary school and throughout high school and college. I have had amazing opportunities to perform with various musical groups across the country, most notably with the 204th Army Band. I also try to play out locally as much as I can. The two groups that I currently play for are the punk band "Omega Moo", and the indie rock band "The Requisite". In addition to these two groups, I also continue to play for the 204th Army Band, which allows me to tour a different part of the world each year.
