When people ask me what kind of music I produce, It's hard to answer. My ultimate goal is producing music and working with artists to bring their vision to life, regardless of genre!
I am interested in music production, composing, mixing, remixing, studio guitar and sax.
Ableton All day!
4 years ago I moved to LA from South Florida for the music and haven't looked back. There is a constant flow of extremely talented people to work with here and it only helps me get better while making awesome music in the process.
I started off as a musician playing guitar, sax, and piano. Post high school I started a recording studio which is where I learned to produce and engineer for my clients. After 8 years, I left the studio life to go on tour with my electronic group Brass Knuckles. Over the next 4 years we played shows around the world and worked with many great singers and songwriters.
Currently I am spending most my time back in the studio working with artists across a wide variety of genres as well as scoring for film and tv. Working in this way keeps me excited for new vibes every day! I look forward to working with you on your project!

Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I do production work such as helping an artist polish off and finish their idea, or building a track around their vocals. I work with producers to create remixes. I mix sessions and comp vocals to get them sounding radio ready.
