Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I like start with an idea, lyrically, sonically, philosophically, whatever, and then let that move me in the direction it does. When working with a client, I like to ask them what their vision is, and then go on that same journey with them.

A: I bring an openness and the ability to be as creative as possible. I want songs to be interesting, while remaining engaging.
