introduction

My relationship with music began when I first watched the 1989 movie "Batman."  Even now, when I hear Danny Elfman's classic score, I have vivid childhood memories of sprinting around the block, my cape soaring behind me.  This musical passion grew when I picked up a guitar at the age of twelve and began strumming around.  But it was years later, during the dog days of college summers, when I began experimenting with music software.  These trials gave me the opportunity to incorporate instruments I had never used, tying together intriguing sonic soundscapes and memorable melodies.

My journey thus far has had its fair share of victories and defeats, but through everything, I press on.  The music I make comes from a very honest place in my heart, attesting to the gamut of human emotion.  I hope whatever season you're in, you can find joy or solace through what I create.  Thank you a million times for listening.

 

Artist statement

The marriage of film and music captured my heart, like many, at a very young age. Not only does each art form enhance the other, but each creates its own language to communicate. It has been my primary goal to develop my own unique musical voice for cinema and use this language to enhance the viewers connection to film. I aspire to be a film composer and write for feature films, television, and commercial advertisements.

There is fluidity in my musical tastes. Having honed my skill and proficiency in music theory and composition, I am always searching for new ways to convey musical ideas. I have curated an ever expanding database of sounds, instruments, and soundscapes that differ in emotional coloring to help explore elements in my work. Each project calls for a unique tone and set of tools, and my experimentation allows for such relationships to form.

I have a goal of placing 12 tracks in advertisements in the next 12 months. Currently, I am writing music for two commercial advertisements and a short film. Having compiled a large library of music, my plan is to submit to music production companies and gain exposure in Advertising. With gaining experience writing music for ads, I can build a portfolio to display my taste and music prowess to filmmakers and directors. In large, it is my primary goal to create a complete and professional reel to showcase my talents as a film composer.
