Music has been his trusted and solitary companion growing up. Being attuned to music and its different genres and subgenres, he became interested not only in the melodies, lyrics, and beats. His passion led him to thirst for more information regarding the artists. But his way of writing is not the typical articles published to feed the curiosity of the fans. He was able to combine creative writing with journalism thereby giving more background information and the feeling of being there with him in his interviews, reviews, footages, and mixes.

His work has been published in various magazines and websites such as The Guardian, The Times, Q, Melody Maker, Time Out, The Observer, Uncut, Mojo, and The Word. Throughout all these years of being a music journalist and critic, he was able to interview famous and controversial personalities in and outside the music industry such as the likes of Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Neil Diamond, Radiohead, Abba, Bee Gees, Nicolas Cage, Robert Downey, Jr., and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
