Dev’s been playing drums since 1993, in symphonic band, marching band, jazz band, and various musicals. He stopped playing for a few years in his 20’s, a silly decision he hopes you won’t repeat.
Since 2014 Dev has been a musician and organizer in https://vamola.org/, the Seattle drum and dance bloco. He also plays for dance classes around the city.
For the last two years he’s been visiting groups all over the US and Canada. He’s hoping to visit and play with every samba group in North America. You’ll probably recognize him as that guy who shows up for a rehearsal in your town and then disappears for a year.
When he’s not playing music, Dev is a data scientist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
