About Me

Over the course of  10 years, I have been working on creating music as a hobby.   Music is an outlet to my world as a fireman and a  family man.

I started with a small Dell laptop with a version of Fruity Loops without the slightest knowledge of basic production terminology (i.e. eq, compression, mixing, mastering, etc.).  I just 'mashed' up different sounds on a sequencer and hit the play button.  I remember the first night I stood up the entire night trying to master Fruity Loops, and realized that if it wasn't for the need of water, food consumption, and bathroom breaks, I could do this 24/7.

Fast forward 10 years, I now have a better understanding of the different facets of musical production.   I also have the desire to create music with different artists and see it through to the final production.

Thanks
