With a B.M. Degree in Commercial Music Production attained from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati, with focuses on songwriting and film scoring, as well as earning a minor in Entrepreneurship, I have learned a large number of skills needed to thrive. My classes ranged from Honors Music Theory, to Studio Music Production, to Jazz Arranging, and Film Scoring. In addition, I studied 5 months abroad at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in Birmingham, UK, and worked with SSL AWS 948 Delta, and SSL Duality Delta consoles. Amassing a cumulative GPA of 3.8, and graduating a semester early proves my eagerness and discipline to work my hardest.
Since I am a Cleveland native, music is a large part of our culture and history. Early on, for as long as I can remember, I have involved myself in anything I could sink my teeth into that was related to music. I have participated in Jazz Ensembles, Wind Ensembles and Marching Band (with the alto saxophone), Pit Bands, as well as extra curricular rock bands at the School of Rock. I was a member of their audition-based “house band,” an elite group that took part in an annual summer national tour. Aside from the tours, I would play up to 50 local gigs a year at venues such as The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, The ODEON, The Agora, and The Beachland Ballroom. These are the years I perfected my guitar playing, performance style, and audience interaction.
I have no other passion as intense as music. I pride myself in knowing that my clients are left with a polished, and exceedingly sufficient product- whether it be a mix, a master, a composition for film, or production services. According to the CliftonStrengths via Gallup Strengths Center, my top five strengths include: discipline, I have self-control to execute my work; deliberative, I am accurate and calculated in my work; achiever, I strive to exceed expectations; relater, I have the ability to tell a story in my music; and futuristic, I am always looking forward and how to improve my music and self.
