1. What gathering activities do you focus on the most? (hoop, drum etc.)

I am a team player who contributes positive energy to the good of the drum circle. I am a good listener and I try to add what is needed to complete the rhythm...

Are you interested in weekend bonfire/drumming campouts?

I am interested in drumming in all kinds of settings. Campouts are especially cool, however circles on the lakefront, in churches, back yards, band shells, boats, street fairs and parades are also very cool. Favorite place to drum is in a church.

Do you have a drum to play that works well for you?

I own 15 drums. I play one drum. The other 14 are for sale.

Have you already taken lessons, or are you interested in lessons and workshops?

I am a student of the drum. I participate in classes, workshops and performances whenever opportunity presents itself.

What type of drumming do you like to do? (shaman, bonfire, middle eastern, american jembe, traditional African etc.)

Authentic Guinea style drumming, including 3 dunun parts and 3 bell parts and a djembe accompaniment/ soloist. Mamady Kaita is my role model for this style drumming.

Introduction

With a name like THOR [Thunder God] you gotta play a drum or at least carry a big hammer. I do both!! Drumming has given me new life. It's not always about "me", there is a collective consciousness in the world and we are all connected...
