My career at Sam Ash Music has been an exciting one. After my first visit to our Buffalo Grove location in early June of 1999, I inquired about possible job openings in the drum department, got the interview, and they hired me! I officially started with the company in June 1999 as a drum sales associate at our Buffalo Grove store. I moved my way up to the Drum Department Manager position, and then to the Senior Department Manager role shortly after. In 2001 I moved into the Customer Service Manager position and worked both as a Customer Service Manager and Senior Department Manager of drums until 2007, when I took on a position as a warehouse associate to keep my schedule open to play in a band. I left the company in April of 2007 to pursue a music career as a drummer with the band, Treaty of Paris. We toured the US and Canada throughout the next two and a half years, released an album and a few EP's, and had some success. Once the band's schedule slowed down, I re-joined the Sam Ash team in September of 2009 as a part-time drum sales associate. One year later, Treaty of Paris went on an indefinite hiatus and I decided to return to my Sam Ash career by going full-time as the Senior Department Sales Manager of the drum department. I decided to make another transition in December 2010 by taking on a new challenge as the Senior Department Sales Manager of guitars. I had my most successful year to-date in 2011, and in January of 2012, I was asked to join the Lombard team as the Senior Department Sales Manager of guitars. This proved to be my most important move to-date, after 4 months I was promoted to Sales Manager. I have been playing drums for almost twenty years now and still enjoy recording and playing live. I am so excited to be part of our management team here in Lombard and look forward to all future endeavors with Sam Ash Music.
