Coordinator - Garage Band Camp Tour - 8th summer
One day, a guitar pick decided to strum a stratocaster's strings. The sound that came out sounded like this: "Djent!" Djent then discovered music, all the multitudes of other instruments that introduced themselves to him surrounded him in every style of music and he marveled at them. Music became his passion. He completed two music DEPs in Drums performance and writing for large ensemble and has worked in the field of music ever since. He wanted to communicate his love for music so much to the world that he decided to become a camp counsellor at Garage Band Camp, then a coordinator. He is very excited to meet tons of extraordinary people this summer and to share his ever-present passion for music! :D
