tell us more about your creative process?

Depends on the project. This album was a cathartic purge over a sleepless 48 hours. Afterward, I spent a few months cleaning up the files.

What’s an average day like for you?

Waking up an hour shy of noon - walk around the neighborhood, listen to records, practice piano, cook, then dive into music around 6.

What can you tell us about your instruments? (i.e., Are you subject to brand loyalty or will you play with whatever's available?)

I use anything and everything. I grew up fairly poor and learned from a young age to use what’s available to me. I do favor Roland & Japanese design overall.

What drew you to the music industry?

It was a natural amalgamation, I started making music at the age of 8. My infatuation has only amassed further over the years.
