I'm a percussionist - turned producer/mixing engineer.

I'm a percussionist - turned producer/mixing engineer. If you ever seen the movie Drumline? That's my background. I've been playing marching drums since I was 7. To keep it short, I transferred those years of experience from Drumline and marching band into producing. I at first just did it for the enjoyment and eventually got into song writing, which lead me into learning audio engineering for myself. I'm very creative and open minded, and prefer to do things differently from the crowd. Just staying true to myself.
