Singer, songwriter, and vocal producer. I've had a song in the top 100 on iTunes, a song on the number one soundtrack on iTunes, wrote songs that received millions of streams on Spotify and Youtube, and have been featured on: Billboard's Next Big Sound, KIIS FM, AOL's Listening Party, CBS's The Insider, Playboy Radio, Radio Disney, Sirius, etc.
I have a home studio set up with a Neumann microphone and Logic as well as ProTools. I can record vocals to your song and either send you the session or send you the vocal files. If you need a topliner, I write songs for a living, so I'm available for hire as a songwriter as well. I am great with vocal production, so I can do all of the harmonies and backgrounds. I do not mix, but I work with professional mixers I can bring in for an extra fee if you need a finished mix.

Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That I produce as well. I write lyrics, vocal melody, sing, record vocals, and arrange harmonies.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Are there any specific influences or concepts you want me to keep in mind? Any vocal style reference that you'd like me to keep in mind, or want me to just do my thing?
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Ask me any questions you'd like to make sure I'm the right fit for you :)

Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been writing pop for over 10 years and make a living placing music in tv, film, commercials, trailers, and promos. I also write for other major artists-have many cuts in Europe, Japan, Korea, etc.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: If Mike Posner, Shawn Mendes, Julia Michaels, and Lauv had a baby...
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Julia Michaels or Shawn Mendes because I love how true to themselves they are and that they write from an authentic place.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Take time away from a song for a day or two and listen with fresh ears.

Q: What's your typical work process?

Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Neumann Mic, Logic, ProTools, Apogee One.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I usually write lyric and melody to tracks and provide vocals-sometimes it's one or the other, and sometimes it's both.
