  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: Music Production, Engineering and Therapy

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

  4. A: Pharrell Williams, Kanye West, and Timbaland. They inspired me so much to do this

  5. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  6. A: Ever changing. I work in different studios. I do have a home set up that I use often with three sets of studio monitors, a MacBook, and every top notch music software you can think of. I have my trusty Axiom MIDI Keyboard and Native Instruments Maschine for all of my digital programming needs as well as a simple Scarlett with a studio mic to record vocals and organic instruments.

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

  8. A: I am like a straw with my process. I let the creativity flow through me without letting my ego get wrapped up in it. I usually get inspired by the client and try to custom tailor the music so that it fits the individual.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: my own unique twists to typical genres. I have a habit of adding odd sounds and not-so typical ideas to projects that make the song stand out without taking away from the center of attention, the artist.

  11. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  12. A: Bouncing back tenfold from a mistake or a lesson

  16. A: Pharrell and Chance The Rapper. They are some of my biggest inspirations

  24. A: That this work is easy or that you need to go to college to be considered "Professional"

  25. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  26. A: Watching the music come alive and become something more than I even knew.

  27. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  28. A: Both, there are things you really can't yet replicate with digital that analog can do and there are things you can't replicate through analog that you can do with digital.

  29. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  30. A: Possible project with Adidas shhhh
