It all began in 2003 when I decided to trade in my skateboard for a drumkit. Being self-taught, I began my career playing along to my favorite songs and starting my own band soon after.
A few years later, I went for lessons and discovered just what a profound effect receiving proper education can have on a musician. This motivated me and increased my passion not only for playing but for educating others as well.
Today, I spend my time teaching, recording in the studio, and playing regularly at church and Barnyard theaters across Gauteng.
