More About Me

I grew up in the suburbs of New York City and lived there until I was 18 at which point I moved to Boston to pursue a degree at the Berklee College of Music.

While at Berklee I learned a lot about producing by playing the drums on many student sessions as well as playing in a local band called Ever Since Day One (ESDO).

In 1997 I graduated with a bachelors’ degree in Music Production and Engineering with honors.

Upon graduating the band toured New England and the Midwest as well as recorded a CD of original music, all while holding down day jobs.

After several years we decided to go our separate ways and pursue other endeavors individually.

To get back into the recording scene and catch up on what had changed I started working at Berklee in the Production and Engineering Department. There I helped run the 13 room recording facility that doubled as class rooms. I managed over 30 work study students as well as supervised over 300 students that were allowed to use the rooms. 

After two years working at Berklee I moved to LA where I got a job at Henson recording studios (formally A&M). I worked my way up from runner to assistant engineer learning a ton along the way before deciding that the life style associated with the music industry was not for me.

After moving back to Boston so my wife could attend Tuffs to get her PhD in child development I needed to find a new career.

I temped at a company that I had worked at back when I was playing in the band until an IT job opened up.

Having no IT experience I taught myself everything I could about Microsoft SQL, database design, .net vb and after three years I am still learning new things every day.

My wife has earned her PhD and we now have a wonderful little girl.
