Grammy-nominated keyboardist, Music Producer, Songwriter and mixing engineer with credits from a wide range of star artists. I love making clients feel they exceeded their own capabilities. I like to work closely with collaborators to get the best out of them.
Music Production - I specialize in making modern, radio-ready sounding tracks. I love to work in many genres but hip-hop, pop, and dancehall are my favorites.
Songwriting - I love to help improve existing songs or write them from scratch. I specialize in lyric writing, cadence, hooks, and especially Song Structure. The topic of Song Structure is one of my favorite and most overlooked parts of the songwriting process in my opinion.
Keyboardist - As a keyboardist, I have toured and performed in more than 60 countries, and have been nominated for a Grammy award. I live to perform and keyboard is my weapon of choice.
Mixing - As a mixing engineer I can gain clarity, polish and excitement in your music. I love to work in any genre when mixing.
I love working with a range of talent from newbie to superstar Grammy-winning artists.
