I’ve been making records for years and have had the opportunity to contribute to Billboard-charting songs several times over. My film, television, and commercial production credits include work for ABC, MTV, Showtime, Huwaii, and the ACM Awards; combined with my work with artists like Andy Grammer, Rachel Platten, Garth Brooks, and Guster, my portfolio is both well-rounded and diverse.
I was working a standard 9-5 when one of my coworkers gave me a copy of Reason 2.0 music software. I took it home the same day and immediately got hooked – for the first time, I had a myriad of different synths and drum machines at my fingertips, and it didn’t take long for songwriting to become my new love. I had always been a musician, but since I started songwriting, I became even more interested in the production aspect of making music. I took the opportunities I was given to learn from the producers my bands worked with, and eventually this lead to being able to run recording sessions with other bands and musicians.
“Pretty good” is my biggest enemy. I demand a lot from myself and the artists I work with because I know that together, we can make music that is nothing less than great. I’m passionate about capturing the best possible performances as well as pushing musical boundaries – two things I think are essential for artists who want to make it in the current climate.
You don’t get a second chance to be great in the world we live in today: technology has both improved and discouraged artists’ chances of making it in the industry. That’s why it’s vital that you feel you can trust my desire to make the best work possible – work that is both musically impeccable as well as faithful to your artistic vision. Making music is a journey – an amazing, challenging journey – and I hope to be a part of yours.
