Here's me playing with the band The Format from their Live at the Mayan Theatre DVD. I never did any real touring with The Format, but played drums on their album Dog Problems.

Here I am with Mandy Moore doing a cover of Rihanna's "Umbrella."

Here's the music video for the band fun.'s "All the Pretty Girls." I'm not in the video (I'm not cute enough, honestly...the bands guitarist, Jack Antonoff, is playing drums in the video - with horible technique to boot!), but I played the drums you're hearing.

Here's a video I put together of me tracking drums to Sam Means's "I Will Follow (That's All)," from his NONA EP. I did this all at my recording studio. If you haven't checked out that part of this site yet, go to the STUDIO link up top here and check it out!

Here's the music video for Schuyler Fisk's "What Good is Love" from the album Blue Ribbon Winner. I don't make an appearance in this one, but I played all the drums and percussion. What a great song!

This is the video for Sing Orpheus's "She Wants to Go." I was the original drummer in Sing Orpheus's very short existence, but we managed to record a great EP, which this song is from. Again, I'm not in the video here (I'm beginning to get a complex!), but the drummer who took over when I left, Luke Adams, is playing great. You're hearing me, though...

Here's another from The Format DVD. I absolutely love this song.

This is the video for Reubens Accomplice's "Field Science" from our album Sons of Men, done by our good friend MoniQue Reina. The drums were fun to record on this one. No real drum kit, but layered percusion more like how an ensemble would play it.

Here's another one of me playing with Mandy Moore...on the Craig Ferguson show.

Here's some footage of me playing percussion in the pit for the musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. There's a lot of running around between instruments in this show...this is just a taste of all that I do there.

This is as close as you'll ever see me get to a drum solo. With Reubens Accomplice.
