About Me

I'm a lifelong musician and dedicated jack of many trades. 'Idle hands' are my enemy. Helping in any capacity drives my motivations regardless of niche. What will we be working on together?

My story can be traced back to one meaningful event at the age of eight which has shaped me since. I began learning my first instrument. My mother found my first drum kit in the garbage bin, got me lessons and by age fourteen I was teaching lessons of my own.  

I discovered how much I enjoyed helping others not far after. By age fifteen, I was my mother's primary caregiver while my father worked. Then I was off and working my first customer service position at our local Grocery store. One wouldn't expect a teen to appreciate these tasks but I found a unique vantage point; If I was to apply the patience which music had taught me into real world scenarios, people really appreciated it! In a fast-paced society like ours, you can make a large impact for someone by pausing to address their concerns. It sounds simple but is difficult to maintain.

In College

In college I discovered a passion for film. Switching majors to this concentration introduced me to social media. I found it so cool that I could post a video, reconfigure some text, research some great keywords/hashtags and contend with people paying entire teams to perform this work for them.

After obtaining my B.A. in Cinema I continued my professional career. With Cablevision Systems I was an accomplished Customer Service Representative. This was my first experience with telephone and chat/email support. I was also recruited for special assignments regularly. I worked with the R&D team on new tech for the contact centers before it was rolled out. As the Company began to notice the need for a Social Media presence, I was among a team of seven that performed customer support on Twitter and Facebook. 

Following Cablevision Systems 

After working with Cablevision Systems I began as Director of Customer Service and Product Implementation with Compliancy Group. We were a small but growing SaaS application which simplified the process of becoming H.I.P.A.A. compliant. 


The Company accomplished a lot during my tenure, providing me many fruitful opportunities. Upon first arriving, I overhauled our CRM, InfusionSoft. Along with the Executive team we formulated the tagging structure still in use. Compliancy Group grew and so did my responsibilities. In not much time I found myself writing the training program for the department I'd come to oversee. I built our customer help center from scratch in HTML & WordPress. I established and built relationships with medical clients and their vendors globally. What I appreciated most was being able to educate while serving our customers.   

In 2019

In 2019 I was in a bad car accident. It nearly cost me my right arm. I can no longer drum due to this. Not one to be dissuaded, I found myself completing the mix on my first solo album not two weeks after release from the Hospital. Over the course of the next two years that number of solo recordings increased to six.

There's a specific reason I explained my story the way I did. It is to emphasize persistence. The only time you fail is when you give up.
