2. Experience

I began touring and playing with various bands directly out of high school before attending the music program at the University of Southern California, where I learned everything about the music business. 

It was around that time I discovered my love for music production, and after interning for various studios, including EastWest and Sony, I found myself at a boutique production studio in North Hollywood, CA, called Killingsworth Recording Company.

It was here that I’d plant my feet in the world of sync and create a career as a writer and music producer. 

Beyond my work in TV and film, our studio developed DRAG: The Musical, which would turn into a month-long live show at the Bourbon Room in Los Angeles with stars such as Nick Adams, Joey McIntyre, and Alaska. The show, which I am one of the guitarists for, is set to travel abroad in the next year. 

3. Education

Beyond my degree in music and my decade-long career as a producer and musician, I’ve long had a love for writing. I’ve written and developed content for several music and guitar websites, including eMastered, MusicRadar, Humbucker Soup, Mubert, Integraudio, and many more.
