I started playing drums at the age of 12 started hanging around music stores not long thereafter.  I started my musical journey by listening to the heavier stuff like Iron Maiden, Rush, and Van Halen, and quickly developed a love for the pop hits of the 50's and 60's.  It wasn't long after that that I became a fan of jazz and funk music.

I also developed an interest in the sound of the drums and cymbals that were being captured on the recordings I was listening to.  When I started to creep into studios and record, I became obsessed with getting the perfect sound.  Before too long, I was working in drum shops and freelancing in the studios as a drummer and a tech; tuning other peoples kits to achieve the desired sound.  

So much plays a part in achieving the ideal sound; the room size, the head selection, the shell material, the sticks used, how the drums are hit, and the body of music surrounding the sound bed.  I love to think of these variables when it comes to sound shaping.  The centerpiece of all of this is the snare drum, so naturally I developed a passion for snare sounds, and I am constantly looking for the next drum that will create that "X Factor" that I am looking for.  

I started DCP in 2009 and haven't looked back.  I had an idea about the type of shop I wanted to create, and I felt it had not been done, so I went for it.  It was the best choice I ever made.  One of the drawbacks is that after years of being out in the trenches with my bands, I had to stop to focus on the business.  I am now gigging sparingly, and I am still able to enjoy my drumming at home on various recording projects.

Sales/General Manager

I have been playing drums for about 15 years now, though music has been part of my life longer than I can remember. Currently I am in a blues/rock cover band, Brickyard Blues. I am also a producer, engineer, and mixer, working on projects regularly. In the past I have been in a few rock bands as well. I would say my biggest inspiration for wanting to play music starts and ends with The Beatles.

I started playing the drums at the age of 5 after being intrigued by the Simmons SDS-7 (hexagon) kit that my dad had set up in the family room. At age 12, I discovered Led-Zeppelin and John Coltrane simultaneously in my parent’s record collection - Soon after, I realized that I was growing more and more obsessed with the drums and juvenilely  started looking for music schools to switch into (from my middle school.) I Asked Jeeves about some info on music schools and he brought me to  Berklee College of Music’s website  - So I  brought that information home to my parents.... After some guidance in helping me understand why I was unable to attend at the age of 12, I began to study the instrument a bit more in-depth.  6 Years later I found myself in Boston attending/graduating from the school of my dreams.  Currently, I’m playing with a few groups and often do freelance work - Some of which include Viva & The Reinforcements (Portland, ME) , The JB3 (Boston, MA),  Billy Moody (Boston, MA), as well as my own group Mechanical/Organic (NH).  Aside from working at DCP and playing music for a living, I also have an unconditional love for teaching and all things education. I’ve studied with John Medeiros Jr, Dave DiCenso, Steve Michaud, Marko Djordjevic, and Yoron Israel - amongst many others! 

Influences include (but are not limited to) - Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes, Mark Guiliana, Steve Gadd, Nate Smith, Simon Phillips, Jack Dejohnette, Ringo Starr, and Peter Erskine.

I began playing drums when I was 12 years old, studying mostly jazz and rudimental drumming with Earle Welch in the basement of the old Music Center in downtown Haverhill, MA. I quickly developed a genuine passion for the instrument.

When I was 17, a dear friend of mine made me tape with Jefferson Airplane's After Bathing at Baxter's on side 1, and the Grateful Dead's Anthem of the Sun on side 2. Those two albums had a profound impact on me, in a number of ways, not the least of which concerned my approach to the drum set, and really my sense of rhythm and feel in general.

A few years later, that same friend presented another tape, this one highlighting the drumming of Tony Williams. I can't say I play at all like Tony, but it was around that time, while listening to him and so many other incredible drummers, each with their own unique style and vision behind the kit, that I started to gain more confidence in my own playing, with less concern for imitation, and more emphasis on expanding my own drumming vocabulary in an effort to create a style of my own. Once in a while, just every so often, I think I succeed at that, which is enough for me...

Some influences...

Elvin Jones, Tony Williams, Max Roach, Jack DeJohnette, Mitch Mitchell (Hendrix), Bill Kreutzmann & Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead), Robert Wyatt (Soft Machine, Matching Mole), Michael Giles (King Crimson), Airto Moreira (RTF, etc.), Alphonse Mouzon (Weather Report), Chris Cutler (Henry Cow), Pierre Moerlen (Gong), Christian Vander (Magma), Guigou Chenevier (Etron Fou Leloublan), Pip Pyle (Hatfields, National Health), Charles Hayward (This Heat), Daniel Denis (Univers Zero), Stewart Copeland (The Police), Jon Fishman (Phish), Ches Smith, Jeff Sipe, Eric Harland...

I co-founded the Facelift / Phaselift project in 2014, now operating as a collective of North Shore musicians playing a mixture of improvised jazz-rock, ambient/psychedelic soundscapes, and general free-form experimentation.

I also play in the Cambridge, MA based rock/jazz/funk/Latin band Vimar.

I joined the DCP team in October 2017. It’s an absolute privilege to work in a drum shop as unique as this. I consider myself very fortunate to be part of this crew, spending my days working with some of the finest instruments in the world.
