Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Asaf discovered his passion for music production during his college years studying Computer Science and Economics at Denison University in Ohio. He converted his dorm room closet into a recording booth and began to teach himself the craft of music making. Soon Asaf became a hub for recording within the school and surrounding Columbus area. After graduating in 2004, he moved to his family in Hollywood and eventually relocated to Orange County to work for a book publisher. His boss recognized his passion for music and encouraged him to set up a studio in his unused office space. With minimal gear and few contacts Asaf set up shop and The OC Recording Company opened its doors in 2005.
