I was born, raised and currently still reside within the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley, NY. I first picked up a guitar at age 12 and began a 19 year love affair that is still going strong today. After years of private study, I attended college and received my Bachelor's Degree in Music while graduating with my department's top award. Since that time, my musical life has taken a series of interesting(and abrupt) detours through the years. Leaving my aspirations for prog rock stardom behind, I began exploring MIDI and soon realized that composition was what I ultimately wanted to do with my music. I have since been working with film and games - Always looking for an opportunity for my musical voice to help tell a story. Soundiron's libraries are very important pieces to my musical palette. I find their choir library concepts to be the most advanced and innovative out of any next generation sample library on the market. As a classically trained baritone myself, I think their masterful legato programming in tandem with poly sustains and marcatos can achieve an unparalleled sense of realism. The Emotional Piano is also just that - Emotional. It is the only piano I turn to when scoring to picture.
