Shortly after graduating high school, M3RC decided to take the next step and start producing his own original music. He later enrolled at Pyramind audio school in San Francisco and completed the Core Producer program in 2013. 

He is now teaching three Ableton Live classes and two DJ'ing classes at Pyramind. M3RC has performed at many world renowned venues and events, including Avalon Hollywood, Ruby Skye, The Regency Ballroom, Fox Theater, Sunrise Event Center, LovEvolution, Control LA/SF, and Insomniac Awakening.
