He started playing the steel drum, or “playing pan” as it is called at times, from the early age of 6, and has been playing pan for the the last 21 years. Not only is he a player, but an accomplished arranger. He was originally taught the steel drums by his father, an accomplished Steel Pan tuner & arranger from the island of Trinidad & Tobago, the home of the Steel Drums.
