A: Both. Life is never black or white, it is a mixture of varying shades of grey that makes the world interesting.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I will always provide quality, professional-level work, as well as respond quickly and concisely to the best of my ability.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Getting to do what I love doing every day, while meeting other like-minded creatives who have the same kind of drive and passion as myself.

A: For transparency, try to provide as many details as you can up front, to make things go quick and smoothly for everyone.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My MacBook, my hard drive, a Neumann TLM 103 with interface, my Beyerdynamic DT 770 studio headphones, and a wi-fi hotspot so I can email somebody to send help while I'm making chill plucky island music and eating coconuts and mangos on the beach.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I have done music since 2006, but I started professionally writing and producing for youtubers and other social media creatives in 2010. I started to gain attention for my own original music, and then transitioned to more mainstream clients.
