I am living in Los Angeles pursuing a career as a composer for Film, TV and Game.
I grew up in Seattle, Washington. In my early childhood I was exposed to many types of music. I studied alto saxophone, violin, and piano lessons before settling into guitar. Currently I write music using both a keyboard and guitar. I began to notice the music in the video games and films that I experienced. I knew right away that this was what I wanted to do. I began taking private composition lessons for both jazz and classical composition genres.
I studied film scoring early in Hummie Mann and Tim Huling's Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program intensive. Soon after I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston where I received a Bachelor's Degree in Composition for Film and TV, and a minor in Video Game Music. On top of studying at Berklee I took the opportunity to write the musical underscore for several short films and orchestration projects. I also took private composition and orchestration lessons separate from the university studies.
