Favorite Music Memory: “The time I was able to watch preschoolers I taught to drum perform a show I created for them. When I started working with them they didn’t know how to hold a drumstick, but at the end I was able to have them perform a show their parents could be proud of and hopefully convinced their parents to involve them in music later on in their life.”
Why KKΨ: “I joined Kappa Kappa Psi because I saw a way to get involved with music and helping out the university that I couldn’t do in my major, and I realized there’s a similar culture between the Psi Brothers and my friends from highschool, who I missed when I went off to college.”
Favorite KKΨ Memory: “Getting my big brother, and getting to know him.”
