I'm a professional musician (drummer and percussionist), race sailboats of varying sizes, and can pop off a bottle cap with a metal spatula. My music career spans performing, teaching, and marketing in a variety of industry roles. I've been a Calico Stompede performer for Knott's Berry Farm, Product Specialist at Tower Records, Regional Manager of a J.W. Pepper sheet music store, and independent artist marketing lead for Sheet Music Plus.
While pursuing a Bachelor of Music in Percussion Performance at California State University, Long Beach I was fortunate to travel to Brazil and Ghana for cultural music tours, studying and performing with local artists. After college I had some serious wanderlust, moving to Boston, then to Lake Tahoe until eventually landing in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2007. Since then I have been working in the music industry as a business manager, artist representative, and freelance musician.
