About me: I grew up in a musical family and was influenced early on by my musician father. I discovered my love of drums and percussion as a young 8-year-old boy at my first concert, The Doobie Brothers (my mother’s cousin was the late, great drummer Keith Knudsen). Beginning in high school, I played in various bands before co-founding the NJ cover band The Benjamins. I had a successful 17-year run, playing thousands of shows, weddings and events.
My formal education began with private lessons in grade school, and continued through high school where I was part of the marching, concert and jazz bands. After high school, I took my love of music and applied it to my interest in engineering. I attended the Institute of Audio Research in New York City and graduated with a degree in Recording, Engineering and Production.
