A: Can you do X genre? As long as you know the kind of sound you want for a project or the instruments needed I can guarantee full satisfaction with the result.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I haven't known any misconceptions yet.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I was part of a band called Vector Space for many years. I studied composition and tonal theories and I've been doing it for 15 years. I began producing 2 years ago partnering up with Jorge Gutierrez, a mix engineer. Working with him I've learnt mixing and sound designing too.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: I got a personal signature I try to always sneak in my compositions. There's always gonna be a melody or phrase doing a 1 then 3 then 7 degrees in any rhythm. I have done several genres, but that's always my signature.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Hans Zimmer or Johnny Greenwood. The way they approach the sentiment of images, stories and color in unimaginable ways is incredible. I'd like to learn anything from them first hand.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: It's important as a musician to understand what makes the music we like what it is, but also more important to understand what makes the music others like what it is. Learn to analyze everything you hear, in the streets, in the car, in the bus, in your job. Learn new things constantly and try those things. You won't see a progress the next few days or weeks, but after years it makes you prepared for anything.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I am an expert on modern tonal theory. I can bring to a song the emotion the client wants.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I interview my client to know exactly what he is looking for and bring some options. The client then could choose one option or a combination of options. I typically get a remixing or ghost producing job in one week.

A: I use Ableton Live. I got a couple Kali LP8 monitors and Sony MDR-7506 headphones, a Scarlett 6i6 interface, a M-Audio Keystation 49es, a Fender Stratocaster, an Ibanez AS53, and some pedals. I work a lot with virtual instruments, so that's almost everything I need.
