I joined the music industry in Dallas in Summer of 2015. I was very nervous and excited; I never knew I would carry this feeling with me still in this present day. I aspire primarily to get more into music publishing.
I specialize in pop songwriting and singing, but it doesn't hold me back from learning other genres. When I joined the music industry in 2015, I expected to become a pop singer/performer. After realizing my love and privacy in the studio, I decided I wanted to make a killing being a session singer/songwriter.
In the first three months of my career, I sent vocals to five different countries all around Europe. On average, my week looks like tackling three to five songs depending who decides to work with me. I have a strict schedule pertaining my projects and make sure I send bounces as fast as possible so that way I can get to the next thought or idea.
Sometimes recording never feels like work to me. Often times I look at a song like a puzzle and wonder how I can make it one complete picture. Either I take an idea from the producer or I reflect on my own. Either way, I love the concept of making something meaningful and something relatable.

Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Most of the time I'll send a complete track and I'll seek guidance what I can fix. After that I send bounces of the verse and choruses separate to seek review.
