  • Most memorable Next-Level Performance

    Recently, playing music with Clocks in Motion Percussion has been an incredible artistic high for me. The group dynamic, level of music-making, and artistic quality is all very inspiring for me. I’m always looking forward to developing projects and performing with this group!
  • What Drives Your Creativity?

    I love listening to global (traditional and contemporary fusion) music from all over the world. Most recently, this would include percussionists Musekiwa Chingodza, Glen Velez, Valerie Naranjo, and Zakir Hussain.
