I started playing the drums at the age 10 in school and through church. I was self-taught for years, having bands throughout high school and college. Finally, during college, I received one-on-one instruction that focused on tempo control, accuracy, volume, power, and rudiments. I truly believe it really pays to have someone challenging and pushing you. I have always focused on these foundations and learned to portray them in the songs I write, teach, and perform. I have had several songs on the Billboard Alternative Top 40 radio chart with the band IAMDYNAMITE. I am always writing, recording and looking forward to sitting behind my kit
I officially and proudly Endorse Yamaha Drums and Hardware, Latin Percussion, 64 Audio, Los Cabos Drumsticks, Humes & Berg Cases, and Bosphorus Cymbals. Additionally I also use BFSD, Aston Mics, Arturia Software, and Hoo Rag.
