Hello everyone! My name is Devin, and I’m thrilled to be joining the Audio Operations team here in New York City. If you see me around the office, say hi! I’m the big dude with the tattoos and beard (yes you can touch it, please just ask me first).
I was born and raised in Queens, NY which is where I still reside today. I have a Music Business degree from Five Towns College in Dix Hills, Long Island. Adam Levine from Maroon 5 went there for a semester or two, so we’re basically BFF’s.
I’ve been a music lover my entire life, and spent the better part of the period between 2007 and 2013 touring with a few bands, one of which is signed to Pure Noise Records, who The Orchard distributes (represent, woop woop!).
Unfortunately I reached a point in my life where sleeping in vans and not showering for days got kind of old, so I decided to settle down and get myself a “real job.” I found myself working at Warner Music Group for the legendary A&R man, Seymour Stein at Sire Records. It was an incredible experience, but a few months ago I thought it was time for a change.
I had been following The Orchard’s various social media accounts for a while, and always took notice as to how happy their employees seemed to be. So when a Quality Control Coordinator position opened up, I jumped at it. Thankfully I got the job and my happiness cannot be put into words! I’m excited about the experience that lies ahead!
