My journey as a drummer started many years ago . . .
Commenced piano lessons
Several Years Later
Stopped piano lessons because I was forced to take them.
Signed up for beginning band because I’ve always loved music. I was placed in percussion because of my piano experience even though I wanted to play the flute . Thankfully, fate brought me to the drums because it was love at first sight!
Santa Clause brought me a drum set and I commenced private drum set lessons (which sucked!).

Joined the Methodist Church band at the University of Miami. I played with them for about a year. Concurrently, I joined Agape – a church band – and I played with them for about a year.

Rejoined Agape, which is now called Generación Agape.
Closed 2learn® which ended an almost 4 year adventure of teaching drummers of all shapes, sizes, and colors.
