I've been 'the voice of Pearl Drums US' on the internet since we started the Pearl Drummers Forum in the early 2000's then moving on to social media platforms soon after. If you've ever received a Comment, Like, Follow, Reshare, or Message from Pearl US, then that was (and continues to be) me. It's a complete joy to interact daily with the worldwide drum community. There's always something new to learn and it's a plus when I can assist someone in furthering their passion and knowledge for drumming.
We recently hit the 500K mark on Pearl's instagram and I'm thankful that we have such a loyal group of followers who love our product... we certainly think it's the best!
Being a drummer who's drumming on drums while talking to drummers who feel drummish in a drummingly way is something I do and talk about a lot. However, I spend an near equal amount of time with social media, web analytics, and digital asset management. How I came into that world (and brought Pearl Corporation along with me) is a much longer story so remind me to tell you about it when I see you. My relationship with Canto has been a short but enjoyable one as they have delivered on their promises. I was happy to accept their invitation to speak with their audience about our best practices on their platform.
Thanks to Leslie and everyone at Canto for the opportunity... I have to juggle a lot of data/content throughout the day and their platform is intuitive and consistently reliable.
Also, I exchanged the picture of me with something a bit more up to date... #egglife
