I love music. Studied piano at 6, Trombone at 8, Guitar at 11, and Drums at 12. Majored in Jazz Drumset Performance at Calarts. Studied drumset intensely with Mark Craney and Joe Labarbara. Studied Vocals with Ron Anderson.
At 17 (1990) I bought a QY-20 and fell in love with beatmaking and songwriting. I made hundreds of songs on that thing. Still have it laying around…
While attending Calarts to study jazz drumset, I began computer-based composition using Sony Acid. This naturally progressed into Reason. Nothing feels as great as making a song that moves me emotionally.
I have at my disposal: A Stayne Mclain hand made boutique tube mic and pre. 3 drumkits of varying size, all top quality (dw and gretch), with full drum mics and 16 track. A full Vdrum set with Superior Drummer ready to roll. A nice keyboard (clavinova) and upright piano. Some slide guitar skills. I am also a professional digeridoo player and own a Quartz Crystal digeridoo (coo!).
I have written music professionally for TV shows, Move trailer back-ends, short films, Cable TV Specials, Fashion runway shows + boutiques (Liz Clayborn, ABS), websites and events.
I am currently recording my personal triphop album with vocals, and play live jazz (drums) 2x per week.
I love film. Hit me for a project and my music will breath thoughtfulness and soul into your creation.
