Oregon Connection: After I graduated from New York University in 2012, I moved to San Francisco to work on a contract with Ubisoft game studios. After that contract finished, I moved to Eugene. I spent a year there composing music for video games and short films while my wife finished college.

When she graduated, we moved to San Francisco for a few years, realized we missed Oregon too much, and moved to Portland. Since living here I've been teaching at Portland Community College on the Cascade Campus. As a faculty member in the Music & Sonic Arts department, I teach music recording technology and composition to students of all ages. My recording students also perform outreach to the community by offering recording services to community groups and local artists, in an effort to spur community engagement and strengthen the Portland music scene.
