Between 2012-2017 in Austin, Texas – before I went to Germany for two years – I performed with SORNE headlining at the 2015 Official SXSW, performed with Austin Samba the largest Brazilian Samba drum line and dance group in America, recorded the latest album with Blue Kabuki, and “messed around” with Fagin’s Music Box. When I wasn’t facilitating shows, I was also learning/performing Djun Djun (ballet style) West African music with friends from Guinea as well as with Drum Cafe.
Currently, I am looking for new groups in Austin, Texas to audition for, particularly all female bands. Please feel free to reach out to me if you are seeking a drummer/percussionist: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Below is a fun, simple video I made a few years ago, inspired by some requests from my students.
Below are two simple pieces I composed and performed for the film The Long-Term Side Effect. The first is a percussion ensemble piece and the second is a four mallet marimba solo.
