Coming to Nimbus was the best life decision I have ever made. I knew I wanted to pursue music as my career, and Nimbus is doing its part in making that possible. I still have 4 months left here, and I have already met so many experienced people in the industry that I wouldn't have had the chance elsewhere. Nimbus is an amazing family and I wish i could stick around longer!
