JustHits. That's it.
I am primarily a Mix Engineer & Production Director who has spent the last 16+ years dedicating myself to growing the entertainment industry. I pride myself on hard work and having a strong passion for what I do. I tour and travel VERY heavily and spend most of my time dedicated to doing music from the road. When I am able to be home, I am in the studio working on mixes as well.
