At Britt, I had the pleasure of working for the Director of Programming, Mike Sturgill on some great projects including; artists contracts, financial planning and analysis, and special event production.

Working with Logic Pro and a pair of the best dynamic stereo microphones, I've recorded in situations ranging from Solo Operatic Vocals to 60+ piece orchestras.

Visiting Pasic 2013 & 2014
For the second year in a row, I attended The Percussive Arts Society International Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. I was fortunate to hear and meet many of my drumming heroes as well as converse with other music-business professionals. Learning about the newest drumming and percussion technologies, conversing with engineers, designers, and businessmen always opens my eyes to the growing entity that is the Music Business.
