"Learn the tools and just have obsessive fun with it!"

Studio Owner, Producer, Songwriter, Artist

My introduction to the recording studio was a massive moment in my life.

As a young, ambitious 15-year-old in a band,

 I was eager to create the ultimate sound.

But, as it turns out...

 The production process was not as straightforward as I had anticipated.

I remember waiting with a cool patience for the producer to finish our tracks,

only to find ...

that they were not quite the aural masterpiece we had envisioned.

But, like any good spy, I adapted to the situation

I realized that if I wanted to create music that was truly epic,

I needed to learn the art of production.

And so, I embarked on a mission to master the craft.

I discovered that producing a great song

does not require a lot of time.

With a bit of knowledge,

and a handful of grit

one can achieve greatness in a short period.

I've made my fair share of tracks I'll throw under the couch

 but I've also had the privilege of learning from some of the best in the business.

My productions have been heard by millions,

placed on America's largest TV network,

and I continue to hone my skills

to push the boundaries of what's possible.

That's why I am offering this mentorship to those new to production.

I'm confident you'll come out of it with pure gold.

This is not a pre-recorded course or a random collection of videos.

This is a one-on-one mentorship, where I will work with you live.

We will cover the basics,

and dive deeper than the sea.

We're all on our journey of discovery,

I know you are too

I can help you discover what we're all looking for,

dope as music...

I'm looking for individuals who are dedicated to the process

open to learning and experimenting in order to make something incredible.

So, if you're ready to join me on this mission

let's create music that will shake the foundations of the industry.

I look forward to it.
