I am a single parent living with my son, divorced, and am a returning adult student, painstakingly attempting to earn a degree in General Studies, Liberal Arts. editorial: I graduated early for Class of 2009.
I am a musician and a social commentator, poet and have been at it so to speak since I was given my first drumset when I was ten years old.

Those days have seemed to dry up as I have moved through many changes and time slipped by.

I am not a technical player, but I am considered a "feel" player and have been recording my own sounds over the last span of years, really.
I hope to find a musical oufit to support and accomany me in my music. I am told I have been a "good drummer" and have sat in with countles
