Producer and writer that focuses on indie pop, R&B, & rock. Let's play!
Let's make something - I can start from scratch or can meet you wherever you're at and will get your song/project where you want it to be. I recently have been producing songs that fall into the indie pop genre, but I am always open to any sounds and genres outside of that. I play guitar, bass, drums, (a little bit of) keys, and sing and can offer that within a song I am producing, or if you need a player on a song!
