During my wide-ranging experience in most styles and performance situations, passionate, dynamic, good listener, humble, well spoken, and professional are all qualities band leaders and members have used to describe me. My job is to support, and I have spent years mastering my craft in order to fully support whomever I work with, both as a musician and person.
Modern Drummer Magazine
Director of Special Projects
(Content Creation, Social Media Operations, Product Reviews, Education, Website Development, Brand Consultant)
Modern Drummer magazine is worlds longest running and most widely read drumming magazine, respected by drummers everywhere as an authority on all things drumming. The world's #1 drumming resource since 1977, Modern Drummer features Interviews with world-class drummers, reviews of drum products, albums, recordings and publications, and reports on trends and events within the industry.
After an extensive audition process, I was chosen personally by director Sam Levinson season 2 episode 7, ‘The Theatre & It’s Double’ which went on to win multiple Emmy awards. I enjoy that type of high pressure environment, it’s an entirely different job as a drummer compared to playing with a band or a recording session. The part of my job that’s the same is to provide support and make everyone else’s jobs easier. The first thing Sam asked me to play was “something kitschy.” So of course I say yes sir no problem. But what does that sound like on the drum set? Well that’s my job to figure out and we have about 20 seconds until cameras start rolling. So after doing that gig, everything else got a bit easier in comparison, and has prepared me for gigs I don’t even know about yet.
