OLIVER CERVANTES

Research Technician I

Biography: Oliver completed his early education in one of Northern New Jersey's famous public school systems, where he studied classical percussion for nine years. Mainly self-taught, it wasn't until high school when the availability of private lessons boosted Oliver's interest and passion for music. He joined the marching band, playing snare on the drum line, and purchased his own marimba to play at home. Oliver reached a peak his senior year of high school, where he took the grand prize for a city-wide talent show by performing on the xylophone, and continued on to play keyboard percussion for the New Jersey All-State Band. Since then, Oliver has completed his BS in Biology at Northeastern University and now seeks to become a great doctor. Sometimes he reminisces about his pre-college days and thinks, "I am not sure why I pursued music with such fervor. I just wanted to be a dancer."
