ABOUT

I am an 18 year old Toronto student at Humber College in the Intro to Jazz program, soon to be in the Bachelor degree.

I have been studying drums for 6 years prior to college. During that time, I have gained 4 years of experience in alt. rock genres including: Post Hardcore, Pop Punk, Shoegaze, Indie, Classic Rock. And a few acts in Hip Hop. In high school I was percussion leader in the Senior band, where I played drum set, snare, bass drum, Timpani, Marimba, and other aux percussion.

I have a very entrepreneurial mentality, and am always looking for new ways to grow and excel as a musician. My primary focus in a musical setting is to make sure what I'm playing not only sounds good, but feels good.

EQUIPMENT

This is where I fall short. I run a CB drumset with Meinl and Sabian cymbals. But ill tell ya, it sounds adequate when I record at home and play live. I have done extra work on the shells for more tone.

Sound guys that I have worked with more than once are happy when I being my kit. Because I can hit hard; or soft, and get a good sound without drowning out the other instruments on stage.

Aside from gigging equipment, I have a bedroom studio with a full set of drum mics, Scarlett 18i20, and Sonar X3.
