    About me

    I started out in the industry as a performer, and loved performing as a studio vocalist, so when considering a career in production I naturally gravitated towards the studio. After graduating from Film School, I landed an internship at Lucasfilm's Skywalker Sound where I was nominated for an Emmy on the first film I worked on. Fast forward to today, and I'm running an after school program for teens on the South Side of Chicago called TechKno Academy, dedicated to exposing underserved teens to a music and film technology education.
