I've been writing music for film and television, musical theatre, concert hall, and church music for around 17 years.
I was also a professional rowing coach, but have moved to LA to focus entirely on music.
Unique traits: I'm also a high level rowing (crew) coach and specialize in writing music for rowers to train to. This means I have a unique understanding of how music can be written to unusual cadences. Strangely it creates an extremely useful aspect relevant the filmmaking to pre-production and production process which many people never even think about!
