Cam Patterson a Junior at Penn State and drummer since convincing his parents to buy him a drum set in third grade has developed a passion over the years. Patterson first inspired by the drummer Animal from the Muppets enjoys playing rock music, but has been learning to playing Soul and R&B.

Patterson has drumed his way through college. Breaking many drumsticks on the way. Drumming has become a remidy to Patterson's ADHD using it as an avenue to channel his energy. 

Drumming has become part of who Patterson is. Even when sitting in class Patterson can’t help but tap with his pencil as if it were a drum stick. Drumming has opened avenues to great opportunities and Patterson is taking full advantage of them.
