Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: There are too many to list here without turning this esection into "war and peace" and boring the living daylights out of you. Hal Blaine and Liberty Devitto are two drummers that instantly spring to mind. They're very influential to me.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: To me there is not a "common type of work" for my clients as each project and client always has its own unique and personal approach.
