I was born and raised on Long Island and began playing music at the age of 12. Guitar drew my attention the most. I was a kid of the 90’s; it was grunge, rock, heavy metal that I loved and knew I wanted to play. Seeing bands perform on the largest stages, in front of thousands of people, I knew I wanted to be an entertainer.
I’ve performed with many bands, in all types of music from punk, to pop, to classical, to jazz. I graduated from Five Towns College and pursued a career as a professional musician and recording engineer. I have worked in world-renowned studios for artists including Jlo, Paulina Rubio, producers such as Lady Gaga’s Red One, and engineers like Bruce Swedien, who made Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
My love of playing, performing and teaching music was always my first passion, and that has brought me to the iSchool today, where I can share my knowledge and experiences with all those that I teach. (Rob N.)
