I studied at Merriam School of Music for over 10 years. I initially began with Piano lessons, and a couple of years later I started taking drum lessons. I quickly discovered that classical piano music was definitely not much of an interest to me.

After 5 years of piano lessons, I switched teachers and began studying with a Jazz specialist and focused my studies on Jazz repertoire. This is where I fell in love with the piano, and music in general.

I realized quickly that I love to improvise. After several years of piano I was eager to start a new instrument and this where I began my studies on drums. I continued to focus on jazz, latin, bossa and funky grooves. Although I have an appreciation for rock, alternative and metal I would consider myself more of a fusion, jazz, hip hop, latin style drummer.

I am adaptable and can listen to and play various all genres of music. I continue to work on my music with my own home studio. I come from a very musical family; both of my brothers also take lessons at Merriam Music on Guitar and piano.
