With a background in hip-hop and jazz, he is focused on creating songs that resonate with listeners in a way that is both energetic and emotional. His main weapons are Ableton Live and piano. He recently moved to Thailand in order to pursue music full time, but will always have a place in his heart for Ithaca.
