I'm a composer based in Ottawa, Canada. I'm currently studying at Carleton University doing a BMus. I've completed second year studies and am currently in third year with plans to major in the field of composition. I greatly admire the music and orchestration of Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer and Patrick Watson (the few I can name off the top of my head) as well as countless others. There is brilliance everywhere.
Besides composing music, I tutor music theory and busk in the Byward Market in the summer time. I play in a band, Out Of Control, and you can find us and listen to our music on Facebook, ReverbNation, SoundCloud, BandCamp and Twitter:
I currently record and create in my basement studio which is equipped with a drum kit, a stage piano, guitar, bass, and some of my toys including a First Nations war drum, a tambourine and a kalimba. I use MixCraft 6 with the EastWest Platinum sound library for most of my work and blend virtual instruments with recorded ones. I have a network of skilled musicians I can call upon to record parts depending on the work, including strings, saxophone, brass, piano, and guitar players, as well as vocalists.
I have worked on a few video game scores with independent developers in the past and have recently finished work with Knuckle Cracker, Inc. scoring the upcoming video game release, Creeper World 3. I am also composing music for the game site Curvefever.com. Other game projects I am involved in are an upcoming first-person horror game with Vapor Games and a yet-to-be-named release with the developer Ataxkt (Tom Kail).
