Hit me up and we can write some songs, handle your music production as well as mixing and mastering for any project.

My artist project "Ruff" has amassed over 20 million streams across all DSPs. I'll work side-by-side with you every step of the way to assure that your final track is radio-ready to your 110% satisfaction!


"I enjoyed working with RUFF. He remixed for us a song of our composition in a complete different style. Although it was not easy to do, he succeeded in making an enjoyable remix. RUFF is friendly and very patient. He listened all the time to our suggestions and proposed good ideas when we were blocked. I hope to work with him again."
