That's the official 'bio'. Now to games... I love video games and have wanted to work in games ever since I realized my style of composing would work well for the interactive environment. Couple years ago I finally found the first great fit with a development team and I'm now on my 3rd title with them. The combination of my two passions, music and games, is unbeatable when it comes to work satisfaction! I've also done coding in my past life before I was able to make a living from composing music full time, and so I thoroughly enjoy being able to be a part of a development team and combine my music world into a developer world.
I'm now forging full steam ahead in the game industry and will be looking for more projects.
