I don’t want to write a formal bio, and you don’t want to read a formal bio. Here’s a list instead:
currently live in Cologne, Germany and work in the camera department for a TV-series called Alarm für Cobra 11.
make music with my electronic/chill-hop project, MAIRZ
worked and volunteered in disaster response as both a cameraman and general-labor volunteer, traveling to the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico after hurricanes Irma and Maria.
formerly worked as a sound engineer for a concert hall in Lexington, Kentucky.
graduated from the University of Kentucky with a bachelors in Music and a focus in percussion and composition—a degree that literally zero employers have asked me about.
won a few local and national composition contests and had my works performed by highly esteemed percussion groups, string quartets and large ensembles. I was having fun until I found out that “being a composer” isn’t really a “job.”
broke the world-record high score and took 1st Place in the 2013 world championship competition as a member of the indoor percussion group, “Rhythm X.”
