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 have been a hobby musician and composer, mostly self taught since high school. I played the keyboards as part of my school and college band (classic rock). I have been working in the video games industry for over 25 years (Capcom, EA etc). I started my own company in 2010 where we build games and movies for kids and families (Gamaya Inc.) I have written music for video games and we recently completed an animated feature film based on Indian Mythology for which I wrote the sound track and 2 songs. I mostly write orchestral/hybrid music. I work with Cakewalk Sonar Platinum and a slew of Kontakt based VSTs (Spitfire, Project Sam, Orchestral Tools and Best Service).
