His advice to young producers, engineers or anyone looking to get into the industry is "Jump. Don't allow yourself to be controlled by fear. When you think about the what ifs, think about what if it works. What if I drive down to ATL to work with an artist with my last $500 and they're song blows up or I run into someone famous at the studio. Never what if this goes wrong. When you start to think that, thats when it does."
