Local Orlando Musician

I'm a music lover from my earliest memory and therefore, I could not avoid eventually becoming a performer. Drums are my preferred method of musical communication although, I'm also a vocalist and willing to shamelessly noodle on keys & mallets. I am an endorsed artist with Trick Drums USA.
