About me

 

Music has been my passion for as long as I can remember.

 I grew up learning to play many instruments; eventually becoming serious when I started playing the drums. I began my percussion studies at The Bloomingdale School of Music leading to my acceptance into New York City’s premier performing Arts high school, LaGuardia School for Music, Art, and the Performing Arts. I continued to pursue percussion as an undergraduate at McGill University's Schulich School of Music where I studied under percussion masters Aiyun Huang and Fabrice Marandola; ultimately earning a bachelor's degree in percussion performance. 

While an undergrad, I began to make and perform electronic music under the moniker Sherrboy. The hours I spent working in DAWs and collaborating with other musicians began a new passion for me, music production. I chose to pursue this passion in graduate school, attending McGill's prestigious Sound Recording program. Under the instruction of industry legends Wieslaw Woszczyk, Martha DeFrancisco, Richard King, and George Massenburg, I honed my skills in studio production and audio engineering. 

I worked on recordings of all musical genres from classical to jazz and pop to Avant Garde new music.  I have recorded, mixed and mastered large orchestras, chamber groups, jazz bands, rock bands and soloists. My recording Mountain Garden by Aquarius Dreams won the gold medal at the annual Audio Engineering Society student recording competition in Los Angeles.

In addition to my work producing and engineering, I composed the music for one of the segments in the 2016 film release Bonjour Hi. I also continue to perform as a percussionist in several ensembles and as the drummer for the Montreal-based band Aquarius Dreams.
