I advanced through music somewhat linearly; starting classically trained, progressing through jazz, and landing somewhere in the contemporary bubble. When writing, I pull strongly from my roots and my past training. My music tends to represent this in its eclectic hybrid nature. In scoring, I have found a home for my restless spirit of adventure. The tools and media available today allow for endless pushing of the envelope. I am at home behind the drums, in front of an orchestra, or surrounded by computers. In any scenario, I will find a way to make music.
