I've done Vocals, Produced, Mixed and/or Mastered numerous prolevel artists/bands in the reggae, pop, hip-hop and indie music scene.
I have always had a passion for music recording starting when I was five years old. As an artists I have always mixed and mastered my own music and my career in sound engineering came about as people kept asking me "who mixed this"? Eventually I started with artists that were my friends or on my label. Everything evolved from there to having a full time collection of top level artists to work on. I really enjoy giving a song or project my own bit of insight to really take things up a notch creatively.
