Introduction

My name is Matt, I love to drum in many styles! I recently moved to Pasadena from Fort Collins, CO where I actively performed with "Bloco em Foco," created by Marcus Santos and directed by Mike Castellon. I'm excited for new opportunities to play!

Olá! Please introduce yourself :-)

Recently I finished my graduate degree in Atmospheric Sciences at Colorado State University and moved out to Pasadena to work at JPL. While my professional life is deep in the sciences, I 'cannot live without' music. Music has surrounded me my entire life. In grade school, I was inspired to play the saxophone by my father who is a phenomenal musician. I played in Jazz band, concert band, state solo competitions, and even had my own rock band. In college, I was introduced to a drum circle and fell in love with the spirt of community and hand percussion instruments. My experience led me to "Bloco em Foco", an afro-brazilian drum group in Fort Collins to which I had an amazing amount of fun. I learned how to play the rhythms for most of the drums and led the group during performances occasionally. I am excited for the opportunities to continue playing in this style!
