Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: Helped write a Billboard Top 40 pop song, with my good friend CVBZ, that Cheat Codes and Fetty Wap were featured in. The song hit number 1 on Radio Disney, and is being featured in the new Adam Sandler movie, which is the most exciting part to me!

Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both! I track with a 1073 preamp, 1176 FET compressor, Puletec style EQ, and an LA2A opto compressor. My vocals dont need a whole lot of extra work in the box after I record them!

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started playing Piano in the 2nd grade because my mom struck a deal, and told me I had to do that before I could play drums. Flash forward, I spent about 5 years touring in a variety of different bands, playing the drums and making beats in my spare time. Moved out to Los Angeles and started focusing on producing full time. I've since had my music on Top 40 radio, 10+ TV networks, movie trailers and retail stores in malls across the globe.
