I am a producer, musician, and mix engineer who's main drive is to help fellow upcoming musicians on their journey to success. I produce metal, pop punk, and rock music with hints of other elements such as EDM and hip hop.
I have been involved with multiple bands over the past several years and I am excited to continue the creative process with you!
Although my main niche is metal, rock, and pop punk, I am also versatile with other genres of music such as EDM, hip hop, and chill hop.
My goal is to help produce the best possible sound within my abilities on a friendly budget for those who may just be starting out with music or want an outside resource from their comfort zone.
Help me help you on your journey to success and let's triumph together!

Interview with Nerdragon Studios
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: For the song track "Pumpkin Head", it was the first time I took a leap of faith so to speak for my musical abilities and ignored all of the negative comments to discourage me to pursue this field as my passion. I even had a couple of good friends hop on the track to do vocals for me. Not only were they happy to help but we all had a blast with the song and really connected deeper as friends over the experience.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Post Malone cover "Better Now"
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: To my knowledge I do not know anybody personally that uses this platform to promote their skillset even though they should. However, if I did I would definitely recommend them.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: I prefer digital. Although I think analog gear is still amazing to this day, most of us are on a budget and don't have thousands of dollars to buy or even rent top of the line analog gear. Digital software and plugins have come a long way and only show promise to improve at a fraction of the cost of analog gear.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: To be patient, flexible, and driven just ask I ask clients to be with me.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: This challenges me to become a better producer and musician overall
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: Q: How long will this take for you to complete? A: Although I ask to be allowed up to 10 business days, it may take a bit more time depending on the complexity of what you want to have done. Q: Are you able to produce songs outside of your preferred genre niche? A: Yes, however I will need a guideline and some references to help you get the best result out of this session that you deserve.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I can turn chicken $H!T into chicken salad. I can only perform to the best of my abilities with the material and information I am given. This however is more so directed towards one's attitude and demeanor rather than knowledge or skillset.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What is the overall feel of the song? What is the tempo and key of the song? Are there any drastic changes that happen in the song?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be flexible and respectful. As musicians we are all in this journey together and we can help each other out the most effectively if we work as a team.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: Acoustic guitar, Acoustic drum kit, All of my music related books, cell phone with my music saved on it, Portable generator to charge essentials...…until I run out of gas
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: My career path is to make a full time income with music. I have doing music for over 10 years and I can't step away from it.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I try to sneak in elements of all of my other favorite genres rationally throughout a song without it feeling like a sloppy mesh.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: A Day To Remember because they embody most of the musical genres I love
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Keep at it even if inspiration doesn't strike in the moment. Repetition creates perfection.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Metal, rock, and pop punk.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Empathy. As artists, we tend to get stuck in our own headspace sometimes which can be demotivating. I definitely have had my struggles as well and want to help others as best as I can to overcome any fears and doubts. I promise if you work with me, you will be in a judgment free environment.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: An open mind. As simple and cliché as that may sound, I never want to have the mindset of "I know everything" because I truly don't. I aspire to try and learn something new each day which makes me better and more adaptable at what I do.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I start writing riffs and composing melodies until I find the right groove. Once I get over the initial block things come much more quickly and naturally.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I try to have an inviting studio space that says professional and judgement free. The studio can be intimidating especially for newer musicians and I want to make them feel as comfortable as possible. I even have video games set up in a near by room for guests while they wait.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Quincy Jones, Post Malone, A Day To Remember
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: They have an idea in their head that they want to transpose to a song. My job is to make it happen.
