Hi there!

My name is Rick and I'm a composer for film, TV, and games. I'm originally from Arizona and currently write music heard in various shows on the History Channel like Ancient Aliens and The UnXplained.

Additionally, I'm signed with the label Platoon (Billie Eilish, Rex Orange County, Stefflon Don) under the moniker “At Dusk” and have been featured on various Apple Music playlists like Sleep Sounds, Sleep Cycle, Ambient Sleep, Pure Meditation, and Ambient Chill to name a few.

Growing up, my focus was percussion; I've performed with the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra, Dark Sky Percussion, all-state orchestras, and wind bands. I got bit by the scoring bug when I watched an interview with James Horner explaining how he produced the soundtrack for Avatar. That lead me to pursue my undergrad in film scoring at NYU where I cut my teeth on student films and documentaries.

Favorite films: Ford v Ferrari. Spider-Man 2. Defiance

Favorite games: Detroit: Become Human. Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

Feel free to reach out to me via email above or on Instagram to collaborate! https://bit.ly/3kkksuO
