I am a very dedicated and committed composer that has a deep passion for conveying story and message through music and audio. Whether it be a film score, piece for solo cello, or a pop song, I handle every project with care and am sure to create music that is organic and genuine.
During my career, I've had the pleasure of working with and learning from some of the best in the industry such as Gerard Marino (God of War), Dominic Lewis (The Man In The High Castle, Money monster), and the legendary Bruce Broughton (Lost In Space, The Orville), to name a few. I interned at Hans Zimmer's Remote Control studios and have continued to use much of what I learned there in my professional career.
I also own my own company, 8va Collective LLC, where we special in many different aspects of the music/film industry. The most applicable here is we also do music licensing. So whether you're interested in an original score, or would like to license a track for your project, feel free to reach out so we can discuss your needs!
