Here we are again at the end of the summer. It was a great summer filled with a number if exciting gigs. I will be posting some videos soon from recent  performances or two that I have been a part of!


I’ve just added videos of a multi movement piece that I recorded with some colleagues and friends at NIU from 2010. The piece is entitled Apocryphal Dances and was written by David M. Gordon Check it out!


In the coming weeks I will be putting up some photos from performances I participated in this summer, and my upcoming performances.


Check back often to see new material!

Hey Everybody, It has been a crazy semester with a lot of exciting opportunities. I traveled to the beautiful country of Trinidad and Tobago and was fortunate to get the opportunity to perform in panorama (their national steelpan competition during carnival). I played with two different bands, Starlift Steel Orchestra and Solo Harmonites. Thanks to everybody who helped me while I was down there. I had the time of my life and hope to be back there soon! Perform in these ensembles that are made up of around 120 players is a powerful feeling that cannot even be explained. There are some videos of the performances with both bands on my performances page, please check them out!


I have also been very busy with performances and concerts throughout the course of the semester having been very fortunate to play in many concerts. There is another one coming up this week. 


I will be performing with one of my former steel bands the ECC Steel Band on their 25th anniversary concert for which we will be sharing the stage with Harper College Steel Band, and also the amazingly talented Liam Teague,  must see world renowned steel pan virtuoso. The concert will be on Wed. May 5th at Elgin Community College in the Blizzard Theater.


With the summer right around the corner I am busily working on different summer projects and performances. Check back for updates of either new performances or new videos!

New Beginnings

Growing up as a percussionist has given me the opportunities to play a wide variety of styles of music with an ever-growing list of talented musicians. This site, over the following years, will be a place to share my musical experiences with you. Feel free to take a look around. Thanks for stopping by!
