My goal is to bring your vision to life.
I'm a multi-genre music producer and engineer with nearly a decade of experience. I grew up playing the piano from a young age, and picked up guitar as well. I've worked with artists and songwriters from Universal, Sony and Warner. I've also worked on projects for Disney. My electronic music project, "Kazlo," has garnered several million streams on platforms as well.
I'm incredibly passionate about music, and want to make sure I'm delivering high quality work. I'm very confident I can take your mixes, regardless of genre, to being radio ready. I am open to 5 revisions, but still want to make sure you're happy with the product. We can always discuss these things further.
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
