Hi, I am a music composer for film, animation, commercials, and theater/dance shows. My choral singing debut was in June of 2009, with choral composer Eric Whitacre at Carnegie Hall in New York.
I am the founder/music director of Animated Eden, an international animation festival in northern England and I frequent to other film and animation festivals to stay current with the industry:
Sundance Film Festival- Park City, Utah
Annecy International Animation Festival- Annecy, France
Message to Man Film Festival and St. Petersburg Intl. Animation Festival - St. Petersburg, Russia
AniFest- Teplice, Czech Republic
FMX and International Trickfilm Festival - Stuttgart, Germany
South East Film Music Symposium- Chattanooga, Tennessee
Django Rhinehardt Festival- Samois-sur-Siene, France
I trained in composition in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory, in the Shostakovich lineage, under Svetlana Nesterova and orchestral conducting under Alexsander Alexayevich. Upon returning from Russia, I completed a film scoring intensive course with composer Hummie Man at the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Academy in Seattle, Washington, and since then, have worked for composer-extrodinare Klaus Badelt (Pirates Of The Carribean, The Time Machine, Equilibrium) and completed internships at Hans Zimmer's studio, Remote Control Productions.
