  5. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  6. A: How my fee's are low but the work is very high quality. They think that maybe I am looking yo build a resume when really I just have very low overhead and I live humbly.

  10. A: My latest jazz project. I did all of the engineering and mastering.
