Meet the Composer

A Gnostic. I like strange stuff. Aliens. UFOs. The paranormal. Ancient mysteries. I'm surprised people even talk to me really. Oh, yeah - I love music!

It all started with a piano

I have been writing music for almost 30 years. My primary instrument is the piano but I have been known to toy with a guitar or two. I was a 1st chair Trombone player at one point, but decided that my interest was primarily in composing, not just playing a part. I was heavily influenced from being in the bass section, especially by the rhythmic sections of the orchestra and pride myself on having a pretty good grasp on those elements of music. After leaving the performance thing behind, I made a change of course into the world of music theory by taking lessons from anyone who would give them to me. I started writing independent short film music for a while, but my passion and inspiration has always been in the ever evolving world of video games. I was heavily influenced by names like: Nobuo Uematsu, Yasunori Mitsuda, Jeremy Soule, Basil Paledouris, and many popular music bands from the 60's onward.
