Born in Los Angeles but raised in the Bay Area, MiSCHiEF BOY made his return to Los Angeles to study at USC’s Thornton School of Music. Though music has always been his passion he began making it his career in high school. While still just a freshman he toured Europe as a guitarist for a prominent Bay Area band and began taking his first stabs at writing and producing. He also started teaching guitar as a means to pay for his college education. Upon graduating high school he decided to take his talents to USC - studying production and music business.
While attending USC, MiSCHiEF BOY interned at Atlantic records, multiple management companies, and was one of only 20 students selected for Thornton’s Board of Counselors mentorship Program. He graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Music Industry and scored his first major label cut the same year, co-producing and co-writing British dance artist Gareth Emery’s lead single “Hands” off his "100 Reasons To Live" album, which went number one in 18 countries. The song also debuted at the closing ceremonies of the European Games in front of a crowd of over 50,000 people.
In the years since MiSCHiEF BOY has become a respected industry name. His credits include multiple commercial, television, and feature film sync’s for companies like Warner Brothers, GoPro, and Michael Kors. He co-produced and co-wrote, “Smoke and Mirrors” for Alastor and Jerome Isma-Ae, which was featured in the trailer for (Warner Brothers Films - Spain) film "El Hombre De Las Mil Caras.” In late 2016 he founded, and is the “CHiEF,” at WiLD COLLECTiVE. The collective is an international producer/artist group that has done remixes for major artists, labels and select independent labels. That venture was shortly after followed by the incorporation of MiSCHiEF BOY RECORDiNGS, a independent record and artist development company in which he signed Nikö Blank as the label’s first artist.
