band: 225, FMBC Band, FCC Band, PTM Bandr
STICK SIZE: 5a
I am 27 years old and I am from the Bronx, New York. I began playing drums at the age of three, which was a tremendous gift from God.
Through practice, hard work, and being humble, my gift & skills developed and strengthened over time. This dedication to using my God-given gift soon earned me the position of Lead Drummer in my home church, Fort Motte Baptist Church. As I continued to progress, I became acquainted with and played for many other churches and at various engagements. I subsequently started to travel with PTM Ministries doing revivals and conferences throughout the states. I also have the honor of being the Lead Drummer of the Fellowship Covenant Church. Throughout my journey, I have gotten to play behind the great Valerie Boyd and Pastor Donnie McClurkin. It has also been an honor to work with Nyim O’reilly, the P.L.A.Y.E.R.S Club Step Team, Meca Talent Entertainment, and Chris Swain. All of this has also been in conjunction with producing and engineering for the New York City Department of Education. Now, I am an endorsed artist for Tonum Cymbals. My primary goal in music and playing drums is to share the amazing gift God has given me with others and to be a blessing that way.
WHY DO YOU PLAY COLLISION?
My Stick of choice is collisions 5a. The thing I love about the Collision brand is that their professionalism & products match. Mr. Banks & the collision teams communication is A1; they literally take the time out to get to know you as an artist. Collisions products are also A1 I’ve never had a drum stick last me this long. I would recommend Collision because they actually care about what they put out which shows they care for the consumer & also the way they’ve communicated with me shows how much they care for their artist.
