Welcome to!

I’m rion smith, and this is my site-  my place to say what’s on my mind, and share with anyone who’s interested, all the different aspects of my life.

I’m currently a full-time drummer for Blue Man Group Orlando.

I’m also husband to my beautiful wife, Yuki, and Papa to our awesome kid Taiyo (pronounced tie – yo, as in, “you must wear a tie, yo!”)

I’m an artist, world traveler, and I’m currently working on creating my own music, and actively uploading new stuff to YouTube: riondrum on YouTube

So this is the place I hope to share bits and pieces of all these things, and where I feel like I can take some time and get deep with the stuff that’s on my mind-  life, drums, philosophy, family, and how all these things somehow come together to make up my life.

thanks for reading-
