I sort of started when I got my drum set when I was in 3rd grade, but I did not start playing consistently until I was in 6th grade.

What is your favorite song you’ve ever played at RiverCity? 
My favorite song I have played at RiverCity would be ‘Hitching a Ride’ by Green Day.

What do you like about RiverCity? 
I really enjoy RiverCity because of the great community and the teachers. I also feel that I have been able to progress a lot faster at RiverCity then I had at school. And of course the great music.

What are your favorite bands/artists right now? 
A few of my favorite bands right now are Foo Fighters, Green Day, Blink-182, The Beatles and Black Sabbath.

What things do you like to do when you’re not at RiverCity? 
Outside of RiverCity, I participate in Cross Country and in two band groups at school – jazz band and advanced band. I also like to cook and I’m in an engineering program.
