It been awhile! I have been super busy the past couple of months, teaching a lot of lessons and rehearsing non-stop with my band DAMS, getting ready to hit the road again, I cannot wait!
I just got back from a mini-vacation in the mountains because sometimes you gotta get out of the city and enjoy nature.
So now I am back, well rested, and ready to get back to work on:

A New Drum Solo Video!…..And More To Come:: In September, I performed a drum solo for the Earth Beats Music Festival in Knoxville Tennessee, it was such a fantastic experience and I am so happy to have been apart of that.

I went on tour with my band DAMS in July, and it was an absolute blast. We played a our last show in Tallahassee at this really cool art space called the Office Lounge. Some of the people at the show happen to run the Witness Room, and the rest is history 🙂 This is DAMS, live in the flesh @ the Witness Room, enjoy.
“Inside These Walls”
DAMS released a music video, enjoy 🙂
I am extremely happy to announce that I am freshly endorsed my new fiberglass drum company, Bello Drums!
Thank you so much to Atlanta Drum Collective for inviting me out to Bello Drum Day at the shop and introducing me to this amazing drum company.
Sunday, April 7th, I walked into the shop, sat down and played, and Bello decided to give me a kit. I LOVE my new kit, it looks and sounds amazing. Thats a first for me and I feel very blessed and thankful 🙂
“The positive effects of music seem to be linked to the fact that music causes neurons in the brain stem, a primitive part of the brain, to be activated in sync with the beat….. That has a cascade of chemical effects on the nervous system, typically evoking relaxation if the beat is slow and improving focus and alertness if the beat is faster.” —- http://www.cbc.ca/news/health/story/2013/04/01/health-music-as-medicine-levitin.html
No wonder playing the drums makes me so happy 🙂
