A: Just bring yourself and lets have fun
Q: How would you describe your style?

Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: melody and creativity.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: melody comes quick. Lyrics I ponder a little longer. Production I just have fun with it.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Ive had the honor of writing for really big artists and hearing my songs all over the radio, but the coolest thing I did was make my own record last year. It was probably the least notable thing I've ever done, but I wrote the whole thing on piano, then produced it, co-mixed it, directed the music videos. It was creatively freeing after working in the music industry for so long.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I share a studio that has everything from a huge digital library/sample library/plugin library, to a full analog setup with live drums, piano, guitars, etc....
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I grew up listening to Lauryn Hill and D'angelo. Although I don't make music like them, the musicianship on their records is so good it makes me feel bad about myself everyday and like I could play music the rest of my life and never be as good. lol.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: topline, vocals, artist development
