Really thrilled to be a part of this team! I'm excited to announce the upcoming album KALADIN, based on The Way of Kings by fantasy author Brandon Sanderson. Partially recorded in Prague, there's a Kickstarter campaign beginning in a few weeks to finish the recording with the London Symphony at Abbey Road Studios in London. Stay tuned for more updates! ... See MoreSee Less

While 2016 has certainly been challenging in some ways, it’s been a great year professionally, and I am amazed and grateful for the opportunities that have come my way this year. Some highlights for me:
-Finding Dory and Passengers for Thomas Newman (part of the music prep team at the sessions) -Ice Age: Collision Course and Pete’s Dragon for lead orchestrator Kevin Kaska (music prep/orchestration assistant) -A really cool upcoming suite by Charles Bernstein, known for his Nightmare On Elm Street score (midi clean-up) -Orchestration work on several small projects (which I LOVE and hope to do more of in the future) -Choir recording session at Sonic Fuel for a mix of personal and professional projects (look for those tracks in early 2017) -Orchestra recording session with the F.A.M.E. Macedonia Orchestra for some personal demo and trailer tracks (to be posted early 2017) -Selected to be a member of the nomination committee for the 2016 Game Audio Network Guild Awards individual categories -Finished our new home tracking (recording) room
And most importantly to me, reconnected with old friends and made new ones at the Game Developers Conference, GameSoundCon, Indiecade and the L.A. Film and Television Meetup group. The people in this field are just awesome.
2017 is looking great already as well; I’m hoping to post some cool new tracks and a VERY cool announcement for an exciting project in early 2017.
I am eternally grateful for this life, and humbled that I have the opportunity to do something I love that challenges me every day to grow as a composer, as a musician, and as a person.
My heartfelt wish for you as we start a new year: May you find a light in the darkest of times, and be a light to others during your best. May you find continued success, exciting projects, and fun adventures in every area of your life in 2017.
Here’s to a new year and new adventures. Onward and upward.
I can't believe it's fall already. Spring and summer were wonderful; I had a chance to work as an orchestration assistant for the illustrious Kevin Kaska (lead orchestrator for John Debney) on Pete's Dragon, Ice Age 5, and other music for a recording with the Royal Scottish Orchestra, and finally managed to complete my new home recording room! We've been taking our good ol' time getting it done (2 yrs!), and while it still needs some acoustic absorption, it's finally usable.
I just got back from an AMAZING time at the GameSoundCon and American Engineering Society conventions. The warmth and talent of the people in the video game community never ceases to amaze me, and it was wonderful to connect with friends old and new. Working now on some personal projects for full orchestra and choir that I hope to record this winter. Life is good. 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less
