1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I was born in Charlotte, NC, began working with music as a child, taking the obligatory piano lessons that seem to be a prerequisite to reaching adolescence. In elementary and middle school years, I took up the violin, but soon traded it in for drums and percussion. At the age of 13, I received a drum set and began learning the ins and outs of rhythm composition.

2. What training have you had?

I am self taught, cutting my teeth in the field. I learned about recording spending time in many studios, including Gat3 (formally The White Room) in Charlotte, NC, as well as Hyperactive Studios in Rock Hill, SC. Through many live shows, I also learned the fundamentals of live sound and acoustics.

3. When did you get into recording?

I played in many garage bands throughout high school, eventually leading to work at age 18 with punk band "No Means" in Lancaster, SC. I got my first taste of recording during this time, putting together a small EP in a home studio in Charlotte, NC. This experience taught me that not all recording equipment is equal, as the result was less than perfect. From that point on, I began to pay more attention to recording gear and techniques. After the demise of "No Means", I was one of the founding member's of "Astrid Haven", a shock rock experimental band out of Charlotte, NC.

4. People you have worked with/for?

In 2006, with the demise of "Astrid Haven", I started, producing and selling sample libraries, as well as running the business end. Through, I worked with artists from around the world, producing remixes and collaborating on tracks. In 2007, I moved to Huntsville, AL and began working with audio at a television station and also began producing training content for, releasing FL Studio Tips and Tricks in early 2008 and FL Studio Explained in late 2008. I closed in late 2008, to focus my efforts elsewhere, while continuing to provide training content for

5. Why are you so good at training people?

I have worked with Sony's Acid and Vegas, Digidesign's Pro Tools, Apple's Logic, Image Line's FL Studio, and Steinberg's Cubase as well as numerous plug-ins. I have spent time in many home and professional studios, producing and recording. My knowledge and experience in sound design and digital audio allows me to offer a superior training product that helps customers achieve higher quality and more innovative sound. My focus on drumming and beat making gives viewers a better sense of producing and programming and offers a focused, targeted line of products to give you an edge in your digital audio tracks.
