Drum / Percussion influences
Some of my drumming influences are from
Alex Acuna, Dave Weckl, Dany Gotlieb, and other drummers.
Toto (Jeff Picaro), Kansas, Gloria Estefan, Basia, Sade, Madonna,
CCM artists such as Crystal Lewis, Burlap to Cashmere, as well as current Rock/pop songs are significant groups
making up my current music style.
Jazz, Pop and Latin are main style I like to perform.
Performing with Samantha Carlson (Jazz) and Kelsey Mira
(Pop/Rock/Jazz) add to performance background.
