I greatly enjoy doing session work. It can be quite challenging at times, but it always yields rewards. Click here to read about how I got my start. I am available for session work when my schedule permits and may be hired out of my home studio (equipment list and isolated drum tracks available here ) or elsewhere. If you are interested in hiring me, please e-mail me at orbinator@gmail.com. Thank you in advance for your interest! I will respond to you within 48 hours, so if I do not then it means that I didn't receive your inquiry. Please e-mail me again - thank you!

     Side note: It is not a stipulation that I must be allowed clearance to post all -- or any -- of the tunes that I track for a session on YouTube. Posting is a byproduct of what I do and it became a fairly effective source of promotion for both my playing and the artist(s) involved. However, if you are hesitant in hiring me because of a presumption that your music must be streamed, that is a misconception. I'd rather have the work, so please reconsider!

     The following is both an 'extended' and 'selected' discography. The extended portion includes songs from recordings in which I was considered a session musician and is arranged somewhat chronologically. Many of the older recordings are included in the music player below (these were done before I began filming my takes). I’ll update this as I complete the projects on my end. The selected portion also features releases from my personal projects/bands. The earlier works will be posted under the aural section of media, as they are not 'session-related.' I’ll update the selected portion chronologically when projects see a proper release.
