My body and soul unleashed unto this world January-26-2006.
Music was constant in our family and open to explore. At age 3 my curious head discovered the baby-grand piano in our house, and soon after I found a guitar. I needed more, something was missing.
By age of 4, and still musically exploring, I pulled junk from the garage and made my own trap kit. I sat on a blue bucket with chopsticks in hand and played on the driveway. My dad noticed this, it was then he introduced me to something magical that changed my life, a real drum kit and "The 2 & 4". From then on I was tapping on anything within reach.
I discovered that drumming drives all music to stay on course and controlled the feel. Plus, it was so much more fun.
Guitar and piano are still in my life; however, my soul belongs to percussions. This early form of communication and dance continues to possess me. I continue to seek
new techniques and styles. I try to keep sharp by playing live, recording often, and practicing a lot. I balance it all while maintaining a formal musical education. Al in effort to better myself.
With the proper education and daily practice I started hearing results, I was on to something.
1- I was accepted and enrolled into Berklee Music University (Boston). My first intense drumming program was completed with a 4.0 GPA, being the youngest in the program at the age of 14. This achievement earned me university credits prior to even starting high school. My professor is Skip Hadden. I am still in Berklee as an undergrad studying under Yoron Israel (Chair of Percussion Berklee).
2- Presently in high school and enrolled full time at Mayfield Secondary School – (Regional Arts Program). Mayfield HS is the finest music school in the country that required auditioning to attend. I was invited to enroll in first round.
3- Lastly, I study privately (weekly) under professional session drummer Jeff Salem.
In summary, based on all 3 forms of education, I feel I'm on the right track. .
Outside of school, I often perform live in a band that I've been the active drummer since 2018. We are about to release our first EP in 2021. Occasionally I'm invited to contribute as a session drummer for other artists.
The quest for percussion perfection will continue. For this bio really has no end.
