I started dabbling in music around age eight or nine. One of my grade-school friends had an ancient Akai boombox that we would use to record piano and vocals.
2. What training have you had?
I'm largely self-taught in computer-based music production and DJing, though prior to entering this world, I spent three years studying flamenco guitar in Spain. I think that experience gave me a unique way of looking at music.
3. When did you get into recording?
I've been into recording since picking up a beat-up Tascam 4-track when I was a teenager. Now, of course, I am a DAW user. With the technology available today, I'm convinced that there has never been a better time in history to get started making music.
4. People you have worked with/for?
When I was in Spain, I was fortunate to study with some heavy-hitters of flamenco guitar, like Manolo Franco and Eduardo Rebollar. I entered the world of electronic music through DJing around the Washington, D.C. area, doing editorial reviews for Amazon's "Dance & DJ" genre, and working in a marketing capacity with Rob Papen and reFX.
5. Why are you so good at training people?
I started producing tutorials because I wanted to create the kinds of common sense explanations that I was looking for myself. I try to leave the dry discourses on the physics of sine waves to the side and continually ask myself, "What would make this tutorial as useful as possible to the musician watching it?"
