I really made a connection with drums when I suffered an injury that put me in a wheelchair for two years. I was unable to do most things that I had achieved with hard work, the things that I thrived when doing, but thankfully, I discovered the drums when I was at one of the lowest points in my life. During this difficult time, the drums lit a fire in me to overcome the challenges that I faced and become the best version of myself not only as drummer but as person. I decided to pursue music professionally because it was a huge form of empowerment for me and today I hope to do the same for others through my creative voice. One of the things that I learned from my experience is not to take things for granted. When I sit behind the drums, I put my whole self in the music I am performing.
