I am a Seattle based sound designer, composer, audio engineer, music teacher, and conductor. I also have experience in classical guitar, early music performance, and Old Norse translation.
I began my video game music career by founding the Video Game Orchestra and Choir at UCLA while I was a classical guitar performance and Scandinavian studies double major. The VGOC got to perform for Nobuo Uematsu which was my first Final Fantasy music collaboration event. Now I participate as an arranger, producer, and musician of the Materia Collective music label and the VGM folk group The Travelers VGM.
I founded and now run the Seattle Video Game Orchestra and Choir in addition to performing and composing for video games and other forms of visual media. In my spare time I enjoy field recording and participating in early music ensembles as a plucked continuo player.
I am also the executive director of the Seattle Composers Alliance where I help with educational outreach to the Seattle music community.
As a writer, I currently create content and help co-manage the Music of Warcraft website.
I am also a community developer and social media sorceress for both The Audio Mentoring Project and Shaded Areas.
