Determined, hard-working individual, looking to gain experience in the Radio industry

Summary

          In January 2009, I was blessed with a phone call telling me that a track that I produced would be used as the backdrop for a new version of a radio program's theme song. That track. which featured local Baltimore rappers, 100 Grand man and Supe of the Love Meds, would become the theme song for 92 Q Jams "Hooligan Express" hour, hosted by on-air personality, DJ Squirrel Wyde.

        This was a big accomplishment for me because it not only was my 1st record to be played on the radio, but it helped spread my sound out to other local rappers who are looking to work with up and coming producers such as myself. The opportunity brought me more potential clients.

          Despite my passion for music, my real passion is focused towards radio, especially in the area of production. I have written and recorded  public service announcements and commercials not only for school related events but just for fun.

         I have had the opportunity to do audio projects on different recording software such as Pro Tools, Adobe Audition, and Fruity Loops, just to name a few. So I have an advanced knowledge of how to get good sounding audio quality out of any project i work on.

          Throughout my work history, I have maintained good attendance and will come in even on off days if needed.

Skills

Skills

Audio Engineer

Between conducting audio projects for school and helping local rappers with producing their songs, I have gained a lot of time dedicated to mixing audio levels and frequency. Though I feel I am not at the level I should be as far as mixing, I have a knowledge of when an audio track sounds clean and when it sounds terrible. I strive to have the most crisp, clean , well mixed audio quality when I work as an audio engineer.

Using FL Studio (Fruity Loops) to make instrumentals

Fruity Loops is the program I use to compose my instrumentals with. I use anything I need, such as keyboards, drum machines, samples, and effects, and I import them into this program to help me expand my creativeness. I have used Fruity Loops to create beats for not only  local Baltimore rappers, but rappers from North Carolina all the way to Indianapolis. I have also used Fruity Loops to create my own instrumentals for Public Service Announcements and Commercials.

Working Adobe Audition

Adobe Audition is a recording program that I have used too many times to name. When I first gained interest in doing work with audio signals, Adobe Audition was the program I started out with and still use to this day.

Working Pro Tools

As a student at Morgan State University and being a freelance audio engineer for many local rap groups, I have been exposed to how to work with Pro Tools. I have basic knowledge of what to use to get the job done but I feel with more opportunities to work on this program, I will become a professional one day.
