My entry is a bit unusual… It’s clips of my progress ever since I picked up the sticks back in February 2020 (great timing!)

I took guitar lessons when I was around 12 up until I was around 15, I enjoyed it but it never really stuck with me. I remember being fascinated by the drums but never took that step – they were a bit intimidating! Fast forward to February 2020, after a lot of thought, I decided to purchase an electronic kit and give it a go!
I dove deeeeep into it. It became like an obsession and would go hours and hours trying to figure things out. I started filming and posting clips on social media and the feedback I was getting amazing, which was unexpected – I just thought I looked awkward lol.
Currently, I try to play as much as I can, at least 2 hour a day on my days off. As for the reason, it just makes me happy!

Influences: Anika Niles, Yoyoka, Jojo Mayer, Clyde Stubblefield, Benny Greb, Kristina Schiano, Dennis Chambers, Sarah Thawer……….”
