Who Am I?

Behind The Music

Since I was young, I've been obsessed with story-telling. Capturing ideas with narrative and characters to impact an audience has always had a weird magnetism for me. When I discovered music, the two were an obvious pair, and I threw myself into it in every way I could! Now, my stories are harmonies, my characters are instruments, and my canvas is your media.

I don't like to talk about myself too much, but I've done a few things recently that I'm pretty proud of:

  • My original music for video games has been presented at industry events like the Game Developer's Conference, the AudioKinetic Adaptive Music Symposium, and the "Breaking Boundaries" convention in New York. 

  • I've worked with companies like Microsoft, Sony, Disney, The Formosa Group, Imangi, EA, and more.

  • My masters degree (MM Digital Media/Film Composition) is from the Eastman School of Music - which consistently ranks among the top international conservatories. 

  • My concert music has been commissioned by ensembles both domestic and abroad, and in 2018 I was selected as a finalist for the National American Prize in Composition.

  • My music for the screen has been licensed to organizations all over the country, and my original scores are consistently featured in film festivals all over the United States.
