At age 10 I heard the call of the drum, music found me, and from that moment on I was hooked on drumming for life. I'm a self-taught drummer and percussionist, who has been playing the drums since I was 10. I have performed in a variety of bands ranging across the spectrum of musical styles. At Florida State University I studied and performed in the Salsa, Balinese Gamelan, and African music ensembles. 


The Tongue Drum is an 

American made instrument

that is a hybrid of an African 

Log Drum, one of the

worlds first instruments 

and an ancient Aztec 



I have been performing on 

the African Tongue Drum

or Slit Box for over 20 years.

I have performed countless 

times throughout America

and during my travels through 

South America, Europe

and as far as Iran.
