I have been writing and producing for years as an independent artist and music creator and have worked with multiplatinum-selling writers and producers.
I specialize in taking ideas and inspiration and turning them into real records, front to back, start to finish. From initial writing to production and fine-tuning.
I have written hundreds of songs and have dedicated years to learning how to hook a listener quickly and take them on a musical and lyrical arc throughout a record.
