Performer •Session Musician • Remix Artist •Producer
I am a professional drummer, session musician, remix artist, and music producer from the western suburbs of Chicago.
In addition to being the founder of the post-industrial/rock/punk supergroup The Joy Thieves, I am an an active member of the dream-pop/alternative rock band The Burying Kind, one half of the audio production team known as Joy Thieves Productions, and the drummer for Chicago-area dance band, Libido Funk Circus.
Over the years, I have worked on audio projects for hundreds of artists; including musicians that have worked with bands like Ministry, David Bowie, Killing Joke, PIG, Depeche Mode, Naked Raygun, Front 242, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, Nine Inch Nails, Stabbing Westward, Nitzer Ebb, KMFDM, Cocteau Twins, and more. Having the chance to work with so many people that I consider to be musical heroes of mine is just one reason why I have just as much excitement and passion for music as I did when I began working professionally back in high school!
