I'm a man who loves music and nature. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, suffered as teenager in Wheeling, WV, enjoyed moderate success in bands in Gunnison, CO, and earned a Bachelor's degree in Sound Arts while performing, recording, writing, and producing in Oakland, CA for the past 13 years. I am currently in the process of moving to the Puna District of the Big Island of Hawaii.
I've had the pleasure of performing in incredible shows over the years, sharing the stage with outstanding musicians and opening for legends such as Fred Wesley (James Brown), DJ Logic, and John Popper of Blues Traveler.
My music has been featured in numerous documentaries, commercials, and films including projects for DiscoveryChannel.com, Afterburn Podcast (theme song), and the PBS film The Story of Jug Handle. My music is included with each copy of the award-winning and national best-selling instructional drum book The Breakbeat Bible by Mike Adamo (Hudson Music).
I am the creator of a web series called EPIC FINDS with Brod Rob, where I travel to remote, awe-inspiring places around the globe to show their beauty and the importance of their conservation, all set to an epic original soundtrack.
