Started learning drums.


Started drumming at church & then later in college.


Got serious about drumming when I came across a drum resource called "The Language of Drumming" by Benny Greb. Things changed from then on.


Quit my Software Engineer job & started teaching drums.

I love 2 things: Drums & Wisdom. My desire is to combine my love for understanding & drums & apply it to create step-by-step drum instructional courses.
