New home! California, I am here!

Thank you all for your continued support of my music! As many of you know,I have graduated from UNLV and am now living in LA. Redondo Beach actually. I am three miles from the ocean, and am trying to use the new location to my advantage as far as inspiration goes. Please forgive me for not posting in a long while. School gets hectic, as does moving so I have neglected my blog for a while. But NOW I am back and will post regularly.

I have had many new an interesting opportunities lately. Since I last posted, I have finished scoring the movie "Stealing Las Vegas" which is a film staring Eric Roberts and produced by Roger Corman. I have also scored the film "Hatching Max" for director Mark Medoff. Aside from my film aspirations, I have also made strides in the concert world. I recently complete "Metropolis," a new wind piece for the Tad Wind Symphony in Tokyo, Japan.

I hope nothing but the best for me out here. I am a fighter, and a hard worker and I am determined to allow some of my musical roots to sink in here. I will be posting new recordings, a new bio, and many other new and exciting things on this site in the near future. Keep a close eye out, and I look forward to your future visits. Follow me on Facebook, Twitter if you should choose. Thanks again!

New Beginnings!

Hello everyone. If you haven't noticed, you can view video from my Graduate recital right here to the right of this window. The show was January 30, 2011, and was a great success. Be looking for more video soon from the UNLV Symphonic Winds, the UNLV Wind Orchestra, and the Tad Wind Symphony. SO, now that I am on the verge of graduating, I am left with the dilemma of what comes next. Well, I decided not to go into the doctoral program anywhere because of two reaosn.
1.) I am pretty much done with school and/or school related business.
2.) I already have enough dept with the US Government.
Whatever I decide to do with my future, need to be done now. I was hoping to get an apprenticeship in LA working with TV/Film composers, but I have not the slightest clue how to even begin. I may also continue teaching as an adjunct faculty here at UNLV for a little while to maintain an income. Keep your fingers crossed, and I will do my best. I chose to be a composer and I will never give up.I knew from day one it was going to be a huge endeavor, and I also knew there was a possibility of many struggles. Bring them on! I want to thank the people who support me: My family, friends, fans for all of your support. Cheers!
