Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

A: I provide flexibility and the knowledge of a drummer and the ears for a melody. I always listen not to see how we can fill space but if something could be cool there and then always willing to take it out if it is to cluttered.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Starting with the beat and main melodies, whether I am starting from scratch or adding to the song the melody is most important. From there I keep adding and taking things away using a trial and error method. Programing drums I try to think of the style and what it is doing for the song, also in a sense of will a real drummer be playing this. When producing podcast I always start with the edits that the clients want working through the time stamps then I add transitions that I make and sample if need be.
