I unknowingly started my music career at age 8 when I decided to learn to play violin. A few years later, I taught myself piano and started composing my own little melodies.
While playing a Star Wars medley in high school orchestra, it dawned on me that being a media composer was a job that I could pursue. I attended Loyola University Chicago and studied music composition and theory with Gustavo Leone. I graduated with a music major and a film minor in December 2011.
In 2015, after a few years of working various soul-sucking day jobs in Chicago (with the occasional composing gig on the side), I decided to move to Austin, Texas and compose full-time. So far, it's the best decision I've ever made.
When not composing, I'm usually petting a cat, eating vegetarian junk food, or taking in an artsy fartsy video game or movie.
