Doucette finds himself returning to the fundamentals drumming curriculum he used early in his career, including early marching band practice regiments. After falling out of a fixed practice schedule, Doucette is introduced to a drumming book, "Stick Control", which brings him back to a regular practice routine.

When not performing, Doucette works as a copywriter, blogger, and digital media producer. He has worked at Blender, Fuse TV, and Heavy.com.
