About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I am an emerging contemporary music composer from Ottawa, Ontario (b.1994).

I currently study composition under Dr. James Wright and Dr. Jesse Stewart at Carleton University as a Bachelor of Arts/Music student. In the near future, I aspire to complete doctoral studies in composition and enter the professional academic sphere as a Professor of Music.

Though primarily occupied with concert music, I also compose for media. In 2015 I composed the soundtrack for "The Elder Scrolls V: Maslea", a fan-made expansion pack for the popular video game "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim".

I am Director of Communications at Ottawa New Music Creators (ONMC), a composer society and concert production organization in my hometown of Ottawa, Ontario.
