Hi there.

While I’m not really comfortable doing the whole self-promoting thing, I promise that I will get this new website up and running soon. However, I can tell you that I wear many hats. And as you’d expect, this means that I often walk around with a pretty bad case of hat hair.

I would like to thank all of my teachers for helping me to become the musician I am today. I am so grateful to them for their dedication, motivation and inspiration. They never gave up on me. Each one of them always pushed me to be a better musician, a more confident performer, and to believe in myself. I would like to become a professor of music where I too can help guide, encourage, and nurture young composers as they grow to shape the course of the next generation of new concert music.

Here are a few fun facts about me to hold you over while I’m updating my website:

  • Prior to officially declaring my major as music theory & composition, I originally was MUED
  • I composed my very first piece when I was in 7th grade – it was terrible
  • I really enjoy writing music for dance, short films, and mixed-media installations/collaborations
  • I create e-learning content that focuses on several topics including: Pure Data, LilyPond, and sound design
  • I’m particularly interested in fusing together elements of synthesis and sound design with new classical concert music
  • I carry my digital recorder with me everywhere I go because I love discovering sounds and using them to create new sounds…from sound
  • My music company now offers a broad range of content including:
    •   royalty-free production music
    •   sample libraries
    • –  ASMR content
    •   original source material for sound designers
