BandHip HopNew Age

I am a music producer. I am a fan of all music and the collaborative creative process. My music and production attempts to capture the artist's intention and strategy relating to the total package of an album - it should be seamless. I love music and the people who make it. So lets get to work.


I began producing after playing live drums and percussion for many years. I loved writing, recording, and doing shows with a band; yet music production, composition, and diverse artist collaboration was something I have an itch for. I see it as a challenge for me to bounce off the artist, push and pull, tweak here and there, in order to blend music and artist; each artist and person is different. I love that. I have since produced single tracks and entire albums and it has been nothing but rewarding. To be involved so much in a product's development from begining to end and releasing it for everyone is what its all about. And the ultimate reward - the reaction to the result. And you definitely know it when you hear it. It's all for the fans, but it starts with oneself.

I have been influenced by punk and reggae/ska music mostly, while hip hop and rap has been relevant to me as well. Since I learned instruments on classical and orchestral music pieces, I have a great appreciation for its complexity. I love all music. It just depends on the level of its permanence in me.
