After attending Full Sail University in Florida and earning an associate’s degree in Recording Arts and a bachelor’s degree in Entertainment Business, Chizzy moved to Atlanta in 2007 where he started working for Apple, Inc. as a Creative at the Apple Store, teaching customers how to use beginner and professional software. While working nine-hour days, he would spend his nights producing for local budding artists such as Travis Porter, Jarren Benton, Nycole Valentina, and others.
While in Atlanta, Chizzy began traveling back and forth to Los Angeles to network within the music industry while maintaining his job with Apple. Eventually, this became too much and he realized he needed to make a change. Creating music full-time and starting his own business had always been a dream of his, and in October 2012, after much thinking and hesitation, he decided to quit his job and move to L.A. to pursue his dreams.
