Beginning at age 6, these drums had me fascinated, I used to visit a friend/neigbors house every day just to get the chance to get on those drums. I'd beat on any and everything in the house. At age 8, my older sister took me to the music store and brought me a drum kit. Every oppurtunity I'd get to roadie around with any of the neigborhood bands I would, and would sit right behind the drummers throne and absorb. With no formal musical trainnig, my playing became noticeable and I was much sought after, getting gigs everywhere- The Church, Partys, ParkConcerts, and even Clubs. At age 14 my mother set me up to study with Mr. Walter Perkins of Jamaica Queens N.Y. Thanks Mom, Dad, Sis, and Fam. The rest is history.
