Catch 22 Duo is excited to announce that we will be going on a South Carolina tour in March of 2019.  We will be heading to various universities throughout the state to present clinics and performances.  Dates coming soon, keep an eye on the CXXII website for more information! (see below)

And just like that, another school year is over!  I'm looking forward to a few weeks of relaxation and catching on many to-do's, one of which is keeping this site current.  Next year will be full of change, as I am adding a new role to my load (see right - serving as a SCPAS officer!), while also taking some off of my plate.  Sadly, I will not return to the marching band field this fall - my responsibilities are increasing at Legacy Early College and DRUM Percussion Studio, so I felt it was time to say goodbye to my Pickens family.  I will certainly miss working with my awesome students and amazing staff, but I felt this was the best decision for my future.  Stay tuned for more updates!

I am thrilled to announce that I was nominated to be the Communications Officer for the South Carolina chapter of PAS this spring!  This is a new role for the chapter, but I have several ideas that I am excited to implement in order to improve communication, community, and service to percussionists throughout the state.  I will be working on our social media platform and discovering ways that we can communicate more efficiently throughout the state.  I am looking forward to getting started this summer!

Welcome to the new, redesigned website! I've been considering a facelift to my old website for quite some time, just to change things up a bit. There were also several things to be added and updated, including some news about the Pickens Marching Band and Catch 22 Duo. I hope you enjoy exploring!

As always, stay updated by following me on Facebook and Instagram (see below!)

On December 8th, Catch 22 Duo had its inaugural performance in Tallahassee, Florida.  Emily and I performed Ivan Trevino's Hold Fast as part of her Masters recital.  Our first performance was a great success, and we are looking forward to many more in the near future.  Stay tuned to our website for more information about upcoming performances, videos, and projects! 


PASIC 2018

November 18, 2018

I just got back from PASIC 2018.  After missing the past two years, it was so refreshing to be back at such an amazing event.  Each time I attend, I am inspired to return home and implement new ideas and explore new areas of percussion.  The best part about PASIC every year, however, is the networking.  Being able to connect with friends from my time at Ohio State (many for the first time in years), while also making new acquaintances (from all over the country) has always been my favorite part of the experience. Here's to another year of percussive learning, playing, teaching, and growing!
