I'm a fully independent artist that makes everything in an apartment in Brooklyn. I'm looking to help you finish what you've started. I have a degree in music production & engineering from Berklee and my specialty is making something from nothing. There's no right or wrong way to write/record/mix/master - just make it catchy.
