Learning under Recording Connection’s program has been a great step in my career!! I’ve gained real world experience with my mentors that have led me to work on some really cool projects. One of my favorite projects was working with Transcendental Radio of the David Lynch Foundation. Also Recording Connection has helped me explore sound design of IOS apps (Joe the Zombie) and the K-pop industry with Joombas Music Group!
