What brought you into the music industry?

Drumming was my favorite hobby in high school, and I never stopped.

How is your life affected by COVID-19?

My entire work calendar from March through December was wiped out. No Coachella, no Lollapalooza, no Royal Albert Hall. But I am supplementing that with a bunch of remote recording projects from my home studio.

Have I benefited from a COVID relief fund?


How do you feel in general?

It is a bummer. 90% of my work has disappeared. But it's happening to everyone, not just me. So, me and my family have a good attitude towards the whole situation.

A short funny/memorable/touching story on the job.

I grew up in New Jersey, spending most of my youth attending countless concerts at MSG or Giants Stadium. So, performing at those important venues and inviting my parents to be guests in the audience was a wild and memorable experience for me.
