About My Work:

My music is a mixture of a few elements. It is all percussion based compositions, including traditional rhythms from the Afro-Caribbean genre, along with the rhythms that come up from the tribal and primal side of my own intuitive rhythm making.

I create a sound that covers a wide range of moving, trancing yet relaxing, and meditative rhythms.

I perform live for an array of events from private to corporate providing the best in live drumming guaranteed to get your group feeling up and alive! I facilitate drum circles for family events, church functions, grand openings, entertainment, community outreach and more…
