Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I worked on a song by presiders called Today. I'm very Proud of the song because, it was one of the first times where not only the artist was pushing me to break my limits but I was also pushing the artist to do the same, he made sure I was outside of my comfort zone so that I'd become a better engineer in the process, and I gave him an instrumental that sparked him creatively to the point where he felt unstoppable on the track

Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: my strongest skill is beat making for sure
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I feel that I bring new ideas that the artist hadn't initially thought of when making the song, for example, adding an effect to a certain part of the song to give it a new flare (somthing like echos, reverses, tempo/pitch change, ect.). and since I'm a producer I set the tone for the overall song of a song as well.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: When making beats my process sort of changes from time to time, Because I become uninspired by doing things the same way over and over again, but usually I like to create a melody firsts, playing with it see how I can alter it to sound even better, and then I put on the drums. (process to complete beat can take, 15 mins to a couple hours). Keeping mixing and mastering short because it could be a long process, I clean the vocals first and get rid of any audio mistakes and ear sores such as high sibilance (from s, t, and f sounds). I compress vocals, eq them and add effects, while lowering/raising volumes at the same time. Then I take a break and repeat.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: I have Many inspirations, to name my top few: Timbaland, Metro Boomin, Zaytoven, Noah "40" Shebib, and Ethan Stevens
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: the most common type of work I do is producing songs for others by providing Instrumentals to recording artists, and mixing and mastering the track (if they don't already have an engineer).
