BEHIND THE CAMERA
A native of Los Angeles, I came to appreciate visual storytelling while taking film classes in high school. Initially interested in cinematography, I attended film school to further learn about film production. This was followed by freelance work as a camera operator and assistant cameraman for local independent film/video productions.
Gradually, I became intrigued by the breadth of musical styles in films - past to present. And I began to develop my musical knowledge by studying music theory, orchestration (under the guidance of the late Robert Drasnin), world instruments, and film scoring - and started exercising my musical creativity via synthestration.
My music has been featured in corporate videos, dance recitals, community events, and other media. I'm a member of the Society of Composers & Lyricists (SCL).
With the encouragement of Chris Meledandri (Illumination Animation), I'm currently focused on networking with filmmakers, particularly within the animation sphere. I also enjoy corresponding with Hollywood film composers, session musicians, and other film industry professionals - in an effort to further educate myself about the art, process, and business of scoring films.
Apart from music, I work as an event filmmaker for European destination weddings, Hollywood events, and more. (Wilmott Productions)
