"Inspiring Music for Inquiring Minds"

Inspired by my high school head band director’s love for music, I fell in love with music and never looked back.

That love for music started a musical journey that has taken me from my humble beginnings in Mansfield, TX, and equipped me for this field, imbued me with many experiences, and has resulted in multiple projects during my time here in Austin, TX.  The central focus of this journey has been my love for music, and that love fuels my ability to provide inspiring music.  The music (and other audio content that I provide) is thought-provoking, edifying, and makes a difference.  This is why I provide audio content for inquiring minds.

If you like what you see, let’s talk more about how I can help you, or just say “Hello.”

All About Me

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from The University of Texas at Arlington in 2007 and taught public school band and elementary music for one year.

I returned to the university to take courses in music composition.  After studying with Dr. George Chave for three semesters, I received an opportunity to pursue my goal of writing music for games and other media by pursuing a Master’s Degree in Music Composition at Texas State University in San Marcos.  I graduated in May 2013 with this degree while studying under the direction of Dr. Russell Riepe and Mr. Richard Hall.

In my spare time, you can find me writing music, playing video games (of which my all-time favorite is Secret of Mana), reading, watching sports, and spending time with friends and family.

Mission Statements

I firmly believe that you don’t have to have a title by your name to be a leader.

I also firmly believe that I am here to use my God-given talents in music composition and audio production to provide the highest quality of work possible and to give credit where it is due.  I cannot accomplish any of this without His guidance and His direction.
