I have been a drummer since the age of 10. Exploring all styles up through my adolescent years, joining many Rock and Club bands in my hometown of Dallas, TX. As with most musicians I found great joy in playing. A satisfaction in making people smile and feeling good.
After playing and experiencing several styles from around the world I knew there was something greater behind the drum. In 2004, I traveled to Haiti to study the indigenous drumming used for community and connection with Spirit. This hit me like a ton of bricks! My journey to the "truth" behind the drum had been opened. Rhythm and vibration as a means of communicating with the invisible forces of energy and nature. So my journeys of learning took me back to Haiti several times, Mexico, the Caribbean and other exciting places.
My blessed position in the world of Drumming has expanded over the years, along with creating magical music and rhythms either Solo or with a group, I now use the drums and rhythms to energize and heal. These techniques are a mixture of ancient teachings I've learned from
various elders along with "Soul Inspired" rhythms and knowledge. The
term soul inspired refers to improvisational rhythms that come to us based on
the energy, environment or what we feel moved to express.
My vision is to unlock the power and knowledge that resides in us all to help increase our awareness, raise our spiritual, mental and physical health and transform one's energy to a field of positive vibration. Unlocking our true self manifests abundance in our daily lives, and one of the powerful ways this can be done is by becoming one with rhythm and asking the vibrations to open the pathways for us while we lay down the rhythmic foundation. My playing has been occasionally called "Ecstatic", "Revolutionary" and "Empowering". I bring my love and passion of spirit and drumming with force to every event. My goal is to share my love, passion and knowledge with groups and individuals from all walks of life.
My goal, my passion is to unlock these realms and dimensions with everyone I meet, sharing my passion and love of drumming. To have others feel what I feel when I play. To let our passion and desires come thru, to allow the positive to manifest and the negativity to respectfully slide away. Drumming is a very deep spiritual and metaphysical experience that can be felt by all who engage in it. I would love to bring my passion and sacred knowledge to you as we explore the power of the drum together.
