  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: I have done a lot with live broadcast mixes and post-mixing those events. The songs have energy and wide. Bass is a strong skill of mine as well. Getting smooth gritty tones and playing simple to what the song needs.

  22. A: I love to bring impact and punch to songs. People I work with love how much energy and wide my mixes are. I am very easy to work with. My instrumentation is exactly what the client looks for. I give what the song needs and they love it.

  23. Q: What's your typical work process?

  24. A: If I am mixing, I like to receive a rough mix of what you are looking for. I try to get as close to a perfect mix without any processing. No need to add things if you don't have to. I try to get the mix to sound like one cohesive unit for maximum impact. For tracking instruments, I like to know what you are looking for, then I'll listen to the song a few times and try to play along and see what I'm feeling and what comes out.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I use Logic Pro X on the Mac Studio for all of my recording and mixing. I use different playback systems to review my mixes to make sure they sound good in multiple scenarios.

  27. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
