I have been actively contributing to the music industry for over 10 years after joining Case Closed as their DJ. I have performed at numerous live events across the UK and United States, and equally collaboratively worked with a vast amount of people in and out of the music industry. I achieved a distinction star overall after studying music production and sound engineering (split over two years to achieve a diploma as a music practitioner - technology and an extended diploma in the creative music Industry) at the Access Creative College. Upon achieving this qualification I was offered a scholarship placement to study a BA (Hons) music production and sound engineering degree at Point Blank Music School, London, I will be starting university in October.


With my extensive knowledge and experience my aim is to aid the label to provide a platform for independent artists and bands to publish and distribute their music with ease and assist with legal aspects of the music industry; including PRS, and PPL. While overseeing the artistic development and mentoring of my acts. I can support or be directly involved with the production, sound engineering, mixing and mastering of the given project.
