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. It was quite the revelation. My understanding of the meaning and language behind the drum had been opened. Rhythm and vibration as a means of communicating and manipulating forces of energy. A means of creating a shift from one mind set to another.
My blessed position in the world of Drumming has expanded over the years, along with creating music and rhythms either Solo or with a group, I now use the drums to energize and heal, to build stronger bonds in the community, to increase and improve creativity in every environment, to aid people in listening to each other, and themselves.
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, one's thought process to that of positivity. Unlocking our true self manifests abundance in our daily lives, and one of the ways this can be done is by becoming one with rhythm, clearing the mind and setting intentions to create the outcome that we desire.
My goal, my passion is to unlock this knowledge with everyone I meet, sharing my passion and love of drumming, and how it has changed my life. 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. It has been noted by many as one of the easiest forms of meditation. Not to mention the physical benefits.
