Hello!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my page. I’m thrilled with the prospect of working with you.

My musical background converges from many different directions. I started as a keyboardist, singer, and trumpet player - jazz, rock, and reggae were my primary genres. I performed with multiple ensembles, and worked as the keyboardist for reggae legend Norma Fraser beginning in 2011.

Once I started my degree at the University of Oregon, I studied classical composition, voice, and piano. I composed for many ensembles, including the grammy award-winning vocal ensemble Roomful of Teeth. Along with my concert pieces, I scored numerous films during my undergraduate, and had the opportunity to present film scores at the Undergraduate Research Symposium and the Oregon Bach Festival. While at the UO, I worked as a video editor for 3 years. My work as an editor helped me refine my sense of pacing and rhythm in film making. I strongly believe that, when it comes to film scoring, timing is everything!

Since then, I have composed for radio, video, trailers, shorts, and feature films. Every day, I find myself falling deeper in love with film and film scoring. I believe in writing music that flows through every unique twist and turn of the film - I hope to have the chance to collaborate with you and make something special!
