I’m proud to announce that I am endorsed by DiMarzio Pickups. I’ve been using DiMarzio since not long after I picked up the instrument and have been in love with them since. You can hear the power of these pickups on the latest Framework release “Where We Divide.” Stay posted for more crushing tone from DiMarzio and me!
Thanks to the awesome people at Caparison Guitars, I was able to attend this year's NAMM Show in Anaheim, California. This was my first time at the NAMM show and it was an awesome experience.
One of the highlights for me was meeting Itaru Kanno who is the lead designer for Caparison Guitars. Here we are pictured below:
I was also able to finally meet Gabriel Ösztreicher who made this whole Caparison thing happen for me. Huge thanks are in order for the whole Caparison family, especially Gabriel, Itaru, Phil Winstead, Chris Siska, and Courtney Cox.
I can't even begin to describe all the cool gear I was able to check out from Ibanez and Ormsby, to Friedman and NUX.
Speaking of NUX, I want to thank everyone there, especially Max Pfister, for allowing me to perform at their booth.
I will definitely be heading back next year!

I received the final mixes for the new Armageddon album today and they sound incredible. These are some of the fattest mixes I have ever heard. A lot of that is due to the fact that we tuned the guitars and basses down to B for this recording. I was also fortunate enough to be able to record my tracks with Chris's Caparison Dellinger bass. Great sounding and playing instrument.
We will soon have a release date for the album and tour dates will follow!
My band Framework will be entering the studio this Sunday to record the follow-up to our debut album 'A World Distorted.' We will be recording a 4 song EP starting with drums at the brand new M80 Recording Studios.
Framework will also be opening for Sonata Arctica and Omnium Gatherum on November 11th at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. Click here for tickets!
Extremely excited to say that I will be recording the bass tracks for Crossing The Rubicon this upcoming week. It's been awesome learning these songs and I hope to do them justice while bringing in my own influences. This record will be out later this year. Stay tuned for more updates!

The second cover is of "11th Hour" by Lamb of God. This one features Eddie Shifflet (a fellow Berklee graduate) on vocals. This one was my first video featuring my new Ibanez RG Iron Label.
I was fortunate enough to play the Main Stage at this year's Full Terror Assault - America's First Open Air Festival with my band Framework. We had the pleasure of meeting a lot of great people and seeing bands like Napalm Death, Terrorizer, and Revocation. Be on the lookout for what's next for Framework!
