Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have been playing and writing songs for the last 13 years. I moved to Nashville 8 years ago, and have been doing this kind of work ever since.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My most recent project was a collaboration with a Hip-Hop producer. I wrote a hook for the break and it was a lot of fun. I had never written for hip-hop before that. We ended up completing two songs in that session.

A: At the moment I am writing for an R&B project.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes. Kris Bradley from BoomFox Productions.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital, because technology has come such a long way.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise to my clients is to make them feel understood and well taken care of.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love being inspired by music from other people's minds and hearts. It is so much fun to add to someone else's art.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: What artists inspire you? Do you have any reference tracks? What feeling do you want this song to instill in your listeners?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Listen to as many samples of work as you can before choosing someone to sing/write songs for your tracks. Make sure you actually are a fan of them as an artist.

Q: Can you share one music production tip?

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I usually pull in a work tape to begin my sessions. I play the tracks on a loop and do a rough melodic take to get an overall feel for how I want the song to turn out. I have my notes open throughout my entire songwriting process, and I write down all of my ideas as I listen to the track. I track parts as I write them, and then once the song is written, I re-track and comp.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My studio is in my home in a quiet neighborhood.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
