I've been a composer and pianist for 26 years, beginning with the Royal Conservatory Program in Vancouver, B.C. Since then I have lived, studying piano and composition, in Reno, NV and New Orleans, LA, New York, NY and Paris, France. Now I am based in beautiful Burbank, CA where I've been building my dual career in film and concert music since 2006.
I wanted to be a film music composer when at age 6, I saw "Star Wars" and told my parents, "I want to make music like that!" while racing around the house conducting and singing.
I've worked in many different fields of music for visual media including independent and major studio feature films, shorts, advertising, documentaries, and web television series. I'm very blessed to work as Music Director and In-House Composer at an amazing production music library, 5 Alarm Music. Music is what I eat, sleep, live and breathe, and I have a true passion for collaboration and serving the film.
I have a Master of Arts in Film Scoring/Composition from New York University (2006) and a Bachelor of Music in Music Business/Piano Performance from Loyola University New Orleans (2004.) I also have a diploma as composer from the summer program of the European American Musical Alliance, held at L'Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris (2005.)
When I'm not making music, I'm spending time with my amazing husband and beautiful children, reading sci-fi and fantasy novels voraciously, dreaming of the Sierra Nevada and thinking way too much about the Fermi Paradox.
