PRODUCTION

Recording

GO BIG! or go small... If you want to build out your sound with full and lush sounding instrumentation or you want to just make a stripped down track, I can help make it happen. 

Production

Being an accomplished producer, songwriter, and musician on drums, piano, programming, and more, I can help with arranging your music and adding instrumentation to build your songs out to the sound you are looking to create.

I have performed for crowds ranging from one to 22,000, sharing the stage with some of the highest-selling, biggest acts in modern music. I also have been appointed the Director of Music Technology at the prestigious Fiorello LaGuardia High School of the Arts for 2022/2023.
