At 22 years old now, I have been teaching students of all ages for the past ten year! I have also toured nationally and internationally as the drummer for Matthew Whitaker. In addition, I have played and performed with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and have been mentored by some of the greatest musicians in the industry including (but not limited to) Jeff Hamilton, Ulysses Owens Jr., and Harvey Mason Sr. Through these experiences, I have a amalgamated a great amount of knowledge that I want to share with you all! I look forward to hearing from you and guiding you along your chosen musical path.

My teaching style is customized to fit a students goals, personality, and learning style! As someone who is educated in human behavior and learning processes, I can leverage that knowledge to provide the optimal lesson for my students.
