I don't get the jitters and I don't get nervous, because I build that comfort on set for myself.

During the course of that I fell in love with it, and I never really turned back.

I want my music to sound like throwing yourself out of a tree, or off a tall building, or as if you’re being sucked down into the ocean and you can’t breathe… It’s something overwhelming and all-encompassing that fills you up, and you’re either going to explode with it, or you’re just going to disappear.
