For as long as I can remember, music has been one of the most important components of my life; not only as a young listener, but then as a musician, and now as an audio engineer. I remember listening as a young boy to my precious vinyl and cassettes, imagining how the sounds were all put together. I envisioned the composers, the musicians, and those behind the scenes who recorded the music and assembled those treasured performances into lasting imprints of music history.
For over fifteen years I have recorded, mixed, and mastered music for musicians, songwriters, film composers, and sound designers. I have had the opportunity to work with many talented and creative people representing a variety of genres and forms. My joy lies in being engaged in this lifelong process of learning, creating, and enjoying music with excellent artists.
When I was ten years of age, I would delight in staying in my room, turning up my stereo, grabbing the perfect pair of pencils as drumstick stand-ins, and pretending I was Ringo Starr. A year later at the age of eleven, I received my first drum kit for Christmas and I was forever in love.
Since the outset of my career, I have enjoyed life as a professional drummer. I have played all over the United States and across the globe. I have backed up many outstanding musicians for both studio recordings and live performances. There is nothing more rewarding than making music with others, for others, or even just for personal enjoyment. Being a drummer in a band, pit orchestra, or recording studio, as far as I’m concerned, is the best seat in the house.
