  • About

    I grew up in Rahway, New Jersey with three primary interests:

    • Composing/performing music
    • Filming/editing terrible homemade movies with friends
    • Programming/playing video games

    I pursued all three in college (majoring in Electronic Media, Arts, and Communcation along with Computer Science at RPI), where I eventually realized I was most interested in combining them: composing music to fit the dramatic needs of film, games, and visual media in general.

    This realization led me to Columbia College Chicago's Music Composition for the Screen graduate program, where I earned an MFA in 2011. At Columbia, I studied with Andy Hill, former vice-president of music production at Walt Disney Studios, as well as award-winning composers Hummie Mann, Mike Reagan, and Ron Fish.

    Since then, I've moved to Los Angeles, assisted other film composers (including Christophe Beck, Rob Simonsen, and Academy Award-winner Mychael Danna) and composed music for several short films and games.
