Hey Cowboys Fans,
I am excited to be returning for my third year with the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Drumline! I look forward to another great year performing for America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys.
I was born in Japan and have lived in parts of Asia, Europe, and now America. I am currently attending the University of North Texas pursuing a business major. My goal is to be commissioned in the United States Air Force. I enjoy traveling and experiencing life and other cultures.
Drumming has been a passion of mine since I was 10 years old. It is a great opportunity to be able to perform alongside a team of very talented drummers and dancers and for the amazing Cowboys fans.
Thank you, Cowboys Nation, for bringing the energy and getting as hype as we do on game days. I am looking forward to another exciting season with the DCRB!
