I was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, growing up with my mom, dad, and younger brother. My parents' dreams of me ever getting a real job were crushed when I began playing violin in 4th grade and fell deeply in love with music.
I attended undergraduate school at Loyola University Chicago, where I majored in music and studied composition with Gustavo Leone. I also minored in film. It was there that I developed a serious interest in film scoring.
Since I began scoring films, I have composed for several directors, most notably Hollywood actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, award winning filmmaker James Choi, and award winning animator/director Steve Baker. Films featuring my music have appeared at Cannes, Berlin, St. Louis International, Tallgrass, FlickerFest, Oak Cliff, and 48 Hour festivals.
I am always looking for new projects. If you'd be interested in working with me or asking me anything at all, send me an email using the contact form!
