I am an avid music composer and orchestrator for film and visual media. I have a bachelors degree in Composition from Webster University, and a masters degree in Screen Scoring from the University of Southern California (USC). I've had the great privilege of learning from such film music veterans as Bruce Broughton, Christopher Young, Patrick Kirst, Garry Schyman, Eric Schmidt, Dan Carlin, and Jon Burlingame. These distinguished composers and industry specialists really helped me grow as a composer and furthered my passion for film and music.

As a film enthusiast, I enjoy working on projects that allow me to create music that resonates emotionally with the viewer. Music has a way of grabbing ahold of our emotions, even if we do not notice its presence, and that is what fascinates me most about film music. I am a strong advocate of orchestral music, however as a composer, I enjoy writing in all styles and genres. I am always looking for something new to test my creativity.

I am continuously inspired by the works of John Powell, Daniel Pemberton, Michael Giacchino, and Jon Brion.

If you have a film, commercial, game, or any sort of project that needs music; or, if you are a composer in need of assistance such as editing, mockups, score preparation, or orchestration, please feel free to contact me.
