Finding meaning in work

“Music happens to be an art form that transcends language.”—Herbie Hancock

I truly appreciate how my profession goes hand-in-hand with my music. I am currently working on my sixth full length studio album. Previously, I have released three hip-hop albums, one drum & bass album, and one collaborative album with a violinist.

When not at work, I am either climbing at the climbing gym or producing music in the studio. If it’s a weekend, I’m either climbing outside or skiing if it’s winter. Part of my passion for the outdoors stems from my childhood growing up in a log cabin in rural Nevada. I have been skiing, rock climbing, and hiking for my entire life.
