"Drumming is not just what I do. It's a way of life. It's who I am. It's my heart and soul transcribed on an instrument as old as time itself. Like a powerful heart beat it is felt in your body & processed by your mind so that your soul may be reached. That's what gives my life purpose. Feel my energy transcending time. Watch my soul unfold in front of you. This has been & always will be my life....Drumming!"
