Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My mixing process is top down. I start always with getting a good balance and gain staging everything correctly. I then will tackle the low end and dial that in first, as well as the vocals. I then build the everything around that. Those to me are usually the most important elements within a song. If you get that right, you're off to the races.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio setup is clean and simple! I love having the flexibility of being able to work in the box. My audio interface is a Universal Audio Apollo and a pair of Yamaha HS8 Studio monitors. If it translates well through those speakers, then I know it will translate well on everything else.

A: Anyone that pushes boundaries and breaks the rules! When it comes to mixing engineers it would have to be Jaycen Joshua, Mike Dean, Mixed By Ali, & Manny Marroquin! When it comes to other musicians my favorites would have to be Kanye West, Travis Scott, Saint JHN, The Weeknd, and Drake.
