I began playing the violin at the age of four, piano at eight, guitar at 12 and the computer at 20. I joined the Army National Guard in order to study music. Five years later and I have a Bachelor's in Music Composition and am about to complete a Master's in Cinema Audio Production made possible with an Officer-producing Army ROTC scholarship.
So far in my career I have:
-Scored approximately 30 student, faculty and independent films, documentaries, animations and video games while also composing and self-producing over 60 separate pieces of music.
-Scored corporate videos for United Airlines and the Chicago Advertising Federation.
-Self-Released two solo electronic albums as "Ramova."
-Interned at two record labels and one music house.
-Set-up a home studio containing industry-grade computer, monitors, audio hardware and professional level sample libraries.
-Been appointed Commander of the DePaul Army ROTC program managing 40+ Cadets.
I am hard working, highly motivated and very grateful for the opportunity to wake up every day and do what I love.
Software proficiencies include: Pro Tools, Ableton Live, Logic, Reason, Finale, Sibelius, Avid Media Composer, Various Plug-Ins and Sample Libraries.
