About Me

I remember the first time I saw a drumset. I was a busy four year old running around the sanctuary in my dad's church trying to get into as much trouble as possible. While my goal was to climb over and crawl under as many pews as possbile, everything changed when I saw it. It was a huge cherry red drumset, seated comfortably between the church organ and grand piano at the front of the church. No longer interested in conquering the pew in front of me, I made a mad dash for the red set. I was within inches of the drumsticks that rested on the floor tom, when I was scooped off the floor and into my father's arms. He read my route to the drum-set and intercepted me before I could pick up a stick. I don't remember what happened after that day, but I know that I had fallen in love with drums and would go on to play from age eleven to now.

These days I play all kinds of music as often as I can. I currently play on a Pearl Export drumkit with power toms. Come by the store so we can talk percussion!
