When we begin a Drum Cafe session, we invite all the participants to “pick up their drums and come PLAY with us”. The word “PLAY” is an invitation in and of itself, and allows our focus to shift from being "result oriented”, to one that is more embracing of a process. In embracing a process, we become more open to possibilities. It’s in the realm of PLAYing that discovery occurs and innovation happens.

Graduating from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Political Science, Pavel moved to NYC to pursue a career in theater. With his love for music and performance, as well as a talent for connecting people and managing teams, Pavel transitioned into a career with Drum Cafe NY. Pavel leads clients through Drum Cafe’s unique interactive sessions, with interwoven themes of alignment; diversity & inclusion; innovation; communication and individual empowerment. In sessions ranging from 5 to 4,000 participants, and forums as varied as corporate board rooms, schools, non-profits and everyone in between, Pavel has worked with hundreds of businesses and organizations, and thousands of participants.
