Who I Am
I began engineering at age 16, when I started running sound at my church in Oxford, NC. It worked out perfectly, as I was someone who could never sit still in the pews. That experience led me to engineering school, where I graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Audio Engineering and Production from Living Arts College. From then until now, I've worked in every space imaginable, from small churches to large, from world class studios to home studios. I believe my experience through all this has given me some invaluable knowledge I hope to share with you all.
Even in my teenage years, if ever I learned something that one of my friends didn't know, I got fulfillment out of being able to teach them what I'd learned. That translated over into college, where I spent all of my free time learning all I could about audio, and then trying to help my fellow classmates if ever they had questions. I even applied to be a teacher after graduation! After coming to my current position, I figured what better way to teach those beginning in audio, and even some who are experienced, than through YouTube and my personal website. And being a teacher means you're also always a student, so hopefully we can learn new things together!
I fell in love with Hip Hop music at age 12 and wanted to learn more of the ins and outs ever since. After listening to The College Dropout as a Junior in high school, I fell in love with Hip Hop Production and purchased my first MPC. The journey to become the best producer I can be has led me down the rabbit hole of many different DAWs and sample packs, and I'm hoping I can take my experience and turn it into something useful for you!

Hey guys! Today I want to share with you one of my favorite plugins so far for mixing drums: the SSL Native Drumstrip. It's easily the most cost effective, as the entire bundle of SSL plugins is only $15/month. I hope you all get something out of this, and I hope to see you next time!
