I love producing records, every single fucking step of the process. 

First off, I have a solo synth-pop record coming out next year on Brick Lane Records. At BLR, I work closely with my dear friends Kirt Debique and Iska Dhaaf, whom I occasionally perform with. BLR as been the most supportive group of friends I have ever had, and I love all of the music we've been putting together so fucking much. I also sing and play synths with my brother, Judah Nagler, in his band The Velvet Teen. Judah is the ONLY reason why I play music and produce records. He bought me a Tascam 4-track cassette recorder when I was a kid and introduced me to Björk and a billion other bands I still love today. We've worked on several records together, each one being a major milestone in my life. I also wouln't be anywhere as an audio engineer without such amazing friends and mentors such as Dan Brennan and Matt Bayles.

I also tour a lot, and have eaten lunch at every gas station known to man.

I got my feet wet in the pool of touring sound with The Velvet Teen as a teenager. And my first job was at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco, CA as a house engineer. From there I went to work with The Good Life, Cursive, Land of Talk, Suuns, The Felice Brothers, AA Bondy, EMA, The Thermals, and Russian Circles. I also used to work at The Doug Fir Lounge in Portland, OR. And again, Dan Brennan has been a huge influence to me as a touring human being and all out favorite person. I met him in Tokyo when The Velvet Teen did a double headliner tour with Cursive in Japan and we've been good buds ever since.
