I am interested in all aspects of the music industry, from production to marketing and promotion. I have experience as a freelance music composer, producer and performer and have worked and interned as an assistant in both music and film production companies. At NYU I majored in Music Composition, Music Technology and Ethnomusicology and Minored in Game Design. I studied and performed jazz in both high school and college. I am well-grounded in the evolution of popular music, both aesthetically and culturally, from the '60s to the present, particularly soul, pop, R&B, dance music and Hip Hop. I also have considerable familiarity with video game music.
