Producer, Remixer, Engineer
I am a multi-skilled musician as well as a producer/engineer. I have been involved with music my entire life and have been working professionally for the past 15 years. As a producer, I've had several tracks played in rotation on mainstream and satellite radio - some of which have also made it on the Billboard and Beatport charts.
I started my music career as a musician playing guitar, piano and saxophone. I then began engineering and producing. I have also been in a musical group the past several years and had the opportunity to travel the world by touring and performing. Such an amazing experience!
Two years ago, I moved to Los Angeles from Miami to pursue music in a more professional atmosphere. In Miami, I owned and operated my own studio for over eight years. This is where I gained experience working with all types of artists and genres. I currently work mainly in pop, electronic, hip hop, r&b/soul and rock.
My specialties that I can offer to you are the following: Session Musician (guitar, sax, piano) Producer, Mixing Engineer, Vocal Mixing, Remixing, and Editing.
I have been using Ableton for the last six years and I have Pro Tools as well so I can work in both formats.
Looking forward to working on your projects with you!

A: I usually work on pop, electronic, hip hop, and sould.
Q: What's your strongest skill?

A: I am inspired by a lot of the new electronic music coming out. Some of the sounds and production techniques that are being used are quite amazing.
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.
