Work Experience

-Session Musician
I have had experience as a session drummer for artists such as Sam Heilig, Lindsey Self, and Stefan Cashwell. I have also have been an on-call musician for churches in the north Atlanta area such as The Branch Church, Life Church, The Warehouse Ministry, Atlanta Vineyard, and Classic City Church in Athens.

Promotional Intern, Outerlight Concerts, Alpharetta, GA, January 2008-May 2008
- Promoted concerts in multiple states. Responsibilities include assembling promotional materials to certain venues, promoters, and church staff. Upon request from upper-level management, I verified the number of volunteers and promoted the benefits of volunteering at a concert with Outerlight Concerts.

Management

- Successfully project managed the recording of “The American Sketches EP” by Stefan Cashwell. This required me to find musicians, a recording space, and also create agreements on payment for both musicians and the producer as well. I acted as a liaison between the hired musicians and the producer.

- Developed and managed a list of musicians to play on a rotating basis at a local youth ministry. I scheduled musicians to play and handled any personal conflicts they had with the schedule we created. We grew the list of musicians from four people to twenty-seven musicians within one year.

- Developed the current roster system for The Branch Church in Suwannee, Georgia.
