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.
When I was 8 years old my parents bought me a cheap keyboard with 50 tones. Ever since then I've been addicted to composing music. I started out playing by ear, picking out melodies in all the movies I grew up with, movies like, Indianna Jones, Star Wars, Back to the Future, Jurassic Park just to name some of the most influental.
Upon the release of the video game Metal Gear Solid, I realized how much of a cinematic medium video games could be after playing through the game along with Harry Gregson Williams' epic score for the game. It was then that I decided to create scores of my own and pursue music productions for film and games as a career.
I'm the type of person who sits down to watch a movie or play a video game and probably throughout the majority of the time pays more attention to the music than I do anything else. Music is a powerful medium, the most powerful in my opinion, with the ability to provoke the most true heart felt emotions, the ability to create riveting suspense, and heart-stopping drama. Knowing this, and having been blessed with a natuaral ability and urge to create music, I feel responsible that I convey my thoughts, my emotions, my visions, through music...and hopefully use my talent to inspire others.

Thanks Kevin! I understand what you mean about the feel of the MGS track. I've never played those games, but it made me want to go buy one of them immediately! I took a lot of inspiration for Gordmyah Ruins from the Metroid Prime series for Nintendo, which I've been playing so much lately. You should definitely check them out if you haven't, or at least the music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dTxmdH01dE . Btw, do you compose just for the pleasure, or is it a part of your work?
