When I was 5 I started learning drums from my father.  Around that time my father also brought home an IBM 286 for me to break, which I did—over and over—until I was about 13, when I finally began fixing things.  As I went through school my interest in technology and music led to writing lots of electronic music and experimenting with computer music software.  In high school I played drums in a hardcore metal band, and wrote music on my computer.


In college I studied Music Theory and Composition with a focus in Classical Percussion at West Chester University in PA.  During this period I also studied jazz drumset and traditional Indian hand drums (tabla). This led to many collaborations in animation, theater, modern dance, film, and video game soundtrack writing.


To pay rent while studying, I freelanced as a web developer, computer repair tech, network administrator, and worked in various sales jobs. Thanks to these odd jobs, I picked up a wealth technical skills.


After school, I moved to NYC where I first worked in the online tech sector as a sales rep, then transitioned more into marketing. I currently work as the Marketing Manager for an IBM Specialty Elite partner.


When I’m not “working,” I’m working on an array of freelance projects and playing drumset in my progressive rock band Oneironaught, which has provided an amazing opportunity to apply my knowledge of music theory, sales, and digital marketing. The result? An impressively engaged online following—that continues to multiply daily—and a cool niche artist marketing approach, which I’m excited to share with fellow artists soon.

My own opinion is that belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence.


The more certitude one assumes, the less there is left to think about, and a person sure of everything would never have any need to think about anything and might be considered clinically dead under current medical standards, where absence of brain activity is taken to mean that life has ended.
