He is best known for his work with fellow producers Ceri Howe, Kai Jolly & John Revelle, who produced various soulful, vocal house music for nearly 12 years under the 'Triplicity & 'Park Street' monikers.

His first original production as True2life with San Francisco's Morrisson came out on the Stereo Mutant's Mutated Music imprint. Other tracks include 'Beautiful Day' featuring spoken word artist Rainy Payne on Redsoul's Playmore Music, and the deeper vibes of the 'Life Trax E.P. which appeared on UK label Drum Records.

Another project with UK vocalist Dennis Wonder called 'What We Had' appeared on Shane D's Stereo Flava Records.
Since then, remixes for spanish label Epoque Music have led him to work closely with legendary vocalist Phillip Ramirez, who’s work with the likes of 95 North, Dino & Terry and Crispin J Glover catapulted him to fame in the mid 90’s.
The first original production was a track that was released in 2014 called ’Take Me Higher’ which was released on Booker T’s Liquid Deep imprint.
