Renn Hawkey (born March 29, 1974), also known by the stage name Dr. Nner, is an American musician, producer, and carpenter. He was the synthesizer player for the band Deadsy from 1996 to 2008. Hawkey retired from music and is currently a carpenter and producer.
Hawkey was born in New York City, New York on March 29, 1974. He was raised in Westchester, New York. Hawkey attended Hyde School, a preparatory school in Maine, where he met future bandmate Elijah Allman.
He was the third member to join Deadsy after frontman Elijah Allman sent him a Juno-106 synth and a demo tape made by Allman and drummer Alec Puro. About joining, Hawkey said, "I never planned on it until Elijah sent me a Juno-106 in 1996 and asked me to join a band with two songs."
He has worked with Thirty Seconds to Mars on the band's self-titled debut album. On September 11, 2008, Dr. Nner left Deadsy in order to concentrate on carpentry and family life. "It was too rough-and-tumble a lifestyle," said Hawkey, who then subsequently reverted to using his birth name.
He has been married to actress Vera Farmiga since September 2008. Their first child, a boy named Fynn, was born on January 15, 2009. It was announced in April 2010 that Hawkey and Farmiga were expecting their second child, due in October. On November 4, 2010, Farmiga gave birth to a daughter, Gytta. The family reside on a farm in Upstate New York. His sister-in-law is actress Taissa Farmiga.
