Alex: A story of creativity

I always knew I wanted to follow music, I was a life long musician, but during high school I became extremely interested in production and began crafting hip hop beats in my bedroom. After high school I was living in Thailand when I decided to make music production my life. I applied to the MIA program at Fanshawe from an internet cafe in Bangkok over a bowl of green curry and the rest is history.

I began my time at Fanshawe September of 2008 at 19. Small, in studio classes, personable and accessible teachers and around the clock studio time was everything I was looking for. At Fanshawe, I learned what would become the foundation of my career as a producer, mixer and engineer.

Not long after my time at Fanshawe I decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee. It was at the legendary Blackbird Studio where I met Grammy award winning engineer Mills Logan and I immediately began working with him. Within a week we were working on a Toby Keith record. I kept working with Mills for a few years until venturing out on my own. I have since worked on studio, live records and performances with : Toby Keith, Luke Bryan, Journey, Gladys Knight, Lady Antebellum, Keb Mo, Rascal Flatts, Future Thieves, Martina Mcbride, Cindi Lauper, Ingrid Michaelson, Alabama, Doobie Brothers.

Thank you Fanshawe!
