Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually start with getting inspiration. Listening to the influences the client has listed as well as some others that fit the vibe. Getting myself in a creative space. Then begin to groove out to the track or playing myself. Then you have to put the rubber to the road and get to work. I find honestly this to be the most inspiring part of it all. Coming at it from different angles until you find just the right fit.
