He is also a student of Tom Hess, currently enrolled in the Music Careers Mentoring Program.

He also has production, songwriting, and guitar credits to his name with quite a few other groups and artists such as: Billy Sunday, Pete Hewlett, Supermonkey, Julie Parker, and Petey Gets Around.
His latest studio endeavors consist of creating the sounds for "The Hug," a robot developed by the Interaction Design Team at Carnegie Mellon University.
