  10. A: I promise to be as transparent as possible. Always.

  11. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

I love to layer, layer, LAYER. It's such a beautiful process. I love to layer harmonies and add unique melodies. As a conscious songwriter, the song is complete when an intentional build-up wraps up and drives home the purpose of the song (a call to action).
