  17. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  18. A: What is you wanna do? How do you envision you sounding?

  24. A: I started producing 2009 but have been in the business a long time prior to that as a freelance musician, songwriter and artist.

  25. Q: How would you describe your style?

  26. A: I like doing a lot with less.

  27. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  29. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  34. A: Writing/production

  35. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  36. A: I play multiple instruments and I'm well versed in programming so I'm able to build tracks around melodies and ideas.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I tend to start from a specific idea, usually recorded as voice memo. I then build a track around that idea and then try to find a good key for the artist it's intended for. Once a song is starting to form, I adjust the track around it and do a little pre-mixing. If time permits I like to let it sit for a few days and then come back and fix what needs fixing.

  39. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  40. A: I work in Pro Tools. Audio runs through my Apollo Twin. I use variety of plugins and soft synths and samplers.

  41. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  42. A: I usually co write with the artist. Sometimes they come in with an idea, other times we start with a pre-made track/hook idea I've made for that artist prior to the session. When it comes to scoring for tv/commercials, they usually have a specific feel or sound in mind and it's my job to interpret that and turn it into music.

  43. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  44. A: Brian Wilson, Max Martin, Pharrell, Dr Dre.
