In 2014, I found out about Busch Gardens through Music City Mystique. I got my first job with Mix It Up. This is a show based off of drum corps but done in a more theme park way of course. Which then led me to being the swing drummer for the Fall season of the park. I performed in Night Beats (under direction of Karma Camp) as the drum set player and in Monster Stomp (under direction of Jeff Whiting) as a Drummer. I fell in love with these casts and shows. I got especially close to my Monster Stomp cast. We like to keep in touch quite often and some of them are of doing touring shows and cruise ships now. This was definitely an amazing experience and I will be returning to Mix It Up in 2015!
My last audio project!
This was my last audio project for CU. I will be graduating in a week or so. This turned out to be my passion within my degree. In this project I had to wipe all the existing audio from a movie scene and recreate all of the audio. From the backgrounds, the footsteps, the dialogue, and the FX. I really enjoyed working on this project. People probably thought I was crazy as I recreated punching sounds in front of my computer. Maybe someday I'll want to be a foley artist. Check it out!
Rockin' Road To Dublin
I just wanted to talk alittle about Rockin Road To Dublin. I was brought in to this show by Scott Doherty and Chris Smith. These guys are phenomenal directors and I am so thankful that they invited me to be apart of their dream. This show is a rock show meets Irish dance. With an amazing band paired up with world championship dancers, it was a blast to perform. The tour was only a week long but we should be getting new tour dates soon. So stay tuned!!!
