Since I was three years old, conducting to John Williams on my stereo in diapers, I have had a mad love affair with music in all its forms. That passion has sustained me through a varied and prolific musical career that has ranged from film scoring to arranging and orchestrating and everything in between.

I was fortunate enough to be selected as one of twenty students internationally forĀ  the 2014-2015 Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television Graduate program at USC’s Thornton School of Music. Ever since then, I have had the privilege of learning from some of the greatest talents in music history, such as Alan Silvestri (Back to the Future, The Avengers), Bruce Broughton (The Orville, Silverado), Christopher Young (Spider Man 3, Hellraiser), Austin Wintory (Journey, Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Abzu, The Banner Saga), Garry Schyman (Bioshock, Shadow of Mordor), conductors Robert Olson (Mahlerfest Orchestra), Devin Patrick Hughes, Vincent C LaGuardia, Jr and Juliard Trained Pianist Jamie Shaak. I have also contributed to professional recording sessions at Abbey Road, Capitol Records, Warner Brothers Studios, Sonic Fuel Studios, The Bridge (now called Silent Zoo), Boettcher Concert Hall and the John Williams Scoring Stage on productions like Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, Marvel’s Agent Carter, Sausage Party, The War With Grandpa, The Banner Saga 2 and Hades. I have also arranged for professional orchestras and ensembles such as the Colorado Symphony, the West Australia Symphony Orchestra and the Videri String Quartet. I am currently lead composer and audio director at RICE Games, with our first major title releasing shortly after the 1st of the year!

I can be (and have been) a copyist, an arranger/orchestrator, a composer, percussionist, conductor, sound designer, audio implementation engineer, music editor and even software engineer, but I always welcome new opportunities to learn more and master my craft. Learning something new every day is essential to me, no matter what stage my career is in or how many years of experience I have under my belt.

So whether you would like to ask about a specific work, collaborate on an upcoming project (whether you are a game programmer, musician or director) or simply say hello, I am always eager to meet new creative minds!
