Why did you want to work at WMG?

WMG’s rich musical history drew me to the company. Icons like Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, Jack Holzman, Herb Abramson, Ahmet and Nesuhi Ertegun – their work had a profound influence on my life and led me to pursue a career in music production. I was keen to help rebuild Atlantic’s studio program and contribute to the company’s legacy of recording excellence.

What is your proudest moment/project at WMG?

I’m so proud of what Atlantic’s in-house recording studio (NYC) has accomplished in its first two years: the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum Hamilton Original Broadway Cast Recording and Hamilton Mixtape, contributions to numerous records, albums, and soundtracks, major contributions to Sturgill Simpson’s Grammy-nominated A Sailors Guide To Earth… – and we’re just getting started!

What’s your desert island disc?

That would be Beck’s Sea Change – or maybe Brian Eno’s Apollo.
