Araica started her professional career as an assistant at the Hit Factory in March 2002. After graduating with honors from the Full Sail Production and Recording Program in Orlando, Florida, she began working as an assistant engineer in sessions for Timbaland and Missy Elliott. Subsequently, she became a full-time engineer at the studio, working closely with Timbaland. In 2003, she met Danja who soon involved her in the recording and mixing of all of his records, helping him to achieve “his sound.” She visits Full Sail University often to spread her knowledge and give current students a closer look into what it really takes to become successful in the music industry.
