In 2011, received the best rhythm section player at the University Of Mary, which is the only award of its kind given out at the event. Also in 2011, I was awarded a Jazz Improvisation award at the University Of Mary.

In high school I received the "best percussionist" award two years in a row during the marching band season. I was also section leader for those years. I played in the pit band for 4 musicals, which received Superior Play and Outstanding Pit awards. My showchoir show band won several "best showband" awards. In 2010 and 2011, I received the "outstanding member" award for the show band. From 6th-12th grade at my regional music contest I received the highest rating on every ensemble and solo I entered in the contest. My freshman through senior years in high school I toured and performed with a college jazz combo.

I was the in studio jazz class drummer for one year at The Living Art Dance Studio. I was asked to play very comprehensive on the spot beats based on simply a tempo. While the routine was being taught I then had to make the beat fit certain hits of the dancers steps. I have played with and for great musicians such as: Trombonist Tony Baker from North Texas University and The Dallas Orchestra, three time Grammy Winner Jeff Coffin from Bela Fleck And The Flecktones and The Dave Matthews Band, trumpet player Rashawn Ross of The Dave Matthews Band, James McKinney from SDSU and co-founder of the New Ensemble for Clarinet and Percussion (NECAP), Grant Manhart, former Trumpet player for The Buddy Rich Big Band, John Von Ohlen, Louis Bellson, and Ed Shaughnessy and current director at NSU, Trumpet player Chris Massa for the Frankie Moreno Band in Las Vegas, Trumpet player Alex Massa of the New Orleans Trumpet Mafia, Dennis McDermott, director at NSU and former member of the Air Force “Noteables,” Ron Parker former touring pianist for Barbara Streisand, Victor Lewis who has performed with many top artists including Woody Shaw, Carla Bley, Kenny Barron, David Sanborn, Dexter Gordon, and Stan Getz. Bassist Erik Applegate who has appeared with jazz artists including the Bob Mintzer Big Band, Nnenna Freelon, Milt Jackson, and Jeff Coffin to name a few. I was one of very few drummers to perform with a Trumpet Combo at the 2011 International Trumpet Guild in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I was the youngest member and freshly out of high school, amongst the Northern State University Trumpet Combo I played for. I was apart of the 2012 Multimedia performance of “Ask Your Mama: 12 Moods Of Jazz,” by Langston Hughes. It took place on the SDSU campus to a sold out theater. I played alongside with LA musicians and composers: Ron McCurdy, Eli Brueggemann, and the rest of The Ron McCurdy Ensemble. I was featured in the December 2012 issue of, "A-Town Magazine,” a local magazine on the music and culture of my hometown. I was also the featured drummer interview on for several months.

I have been featured in my local newspapers and magazines over 20 times in my life so far, all involving my musical endeavors. In 2013 I was 1 of 151 drummers chosen by Promark for their #project151 prototype stick testing. I currently teach 9 drum students at the Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls, SD. In 2013, I received “most passionate instructor” from the Academy. I previously taught 6 drum students ranging from beginner to advanced at Pauer Sound & Music Inc. in Aberdeen, SD.
