I have had several different jobs throughout my life, none of which really satisfied me like audio production does. If you ask me what am I these days, rather than telling people the job that generally pays most of the bills, I would say I'm a musician, songwriter and producer. "What have you produced" they might ask, to which I say plenty (you just haven't heard it yet!)
I have played in multiple bands over many years as a guitarist / singer and never really gelled with any of them because I really only wanted to play and record originals. Doing cover versions that never really matched up to the originals never did it for me. Most of the other guys wanted to become famous and thought this was the way to do it. The thing is, you will never become famous playing covers and you will never have the exhilaration of hearing other people singing your songs unless you take a chance and do something truly original.
I have been recording, mixing and mastering my own original songs for a years now and through many trials and errors have come to a place where I believe I have all the tools and talent to produce high quality music for others.
If you want to express your gift with recorded music but are unsure of where to start I would like to help you make that start. Check out the "Audio", "Lyrics" and "Audio Samples" pages for some of my original ideas.
