ABOUT

I am a professional game/film composer and multi-instrumentalist from Sumter, South Carolina. I studied guitar and music composition at Winthrop University and Berklee College of Music. I'm fluent in composition, orchestration, arranging, music theory, game audio, and audio production (including mixing and mastering).

So far I've scored about 25 indie game titles released across Xbox One and PC. and a few jingles and short films.

Besides all this I also used to teach guitar, piano, bass and music composition at Sam Ash in Charlotte, NC.

I'm just looking for fellow musicians in the area to meet and hangout with and learn from. I'm also always looking for musicians to hire on my soundtracks, so if you're interested in that let me know!

I'm also interested in songwriting partners, or lyricists. Honestly anything creatively freeing. I'm mostly into writing though. If you want to collaborate on some songs let me know! I have a lot of experience writing and would enjoy doing some of that stuff just for the experience. :) Lyricists and arrangers feel free to reach out!

Also currently looking for arranging work. So if you're a songwriter, band, etc and need someone to arrange your music let me know!
