He began drumming at two years old, played in his first live recording session at the ripe young age of seven, and acquired a roster of drum company endorsements by the time he turned eleven. At an early age, he began to create his own music, which fueled his relentless passion and respect for the drums. The church encouraged his early development and exposure to music, so when he became interested in expanding his knowledge of music and honing his craft, he embarked upon the study of music theory.
At fourteen, he gained admission into the renowned Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Dallas, Texas, a school which fostered the amazing talents of Norah Jones, Erykah Badu, and the late Roy Hargrove. Dynamite took full advantage of attending workshops, master classes, and clinics at colleges and universities all over the country during the summer breaks between tours.

By the time he graduated high school in 2013, Dynamite was drumming for the living legend, virtuoso bassist, composer, Stanley Clarke.
