I feel it is my purpose to contribute, however large or small, something meaningful to this world through the creation of music. Music emanates something so profound and intangible; and when fused with purposeful storytelling, can create such an impactful and beautiful experience.
I want to help tell stories that are meaningful and carry a revitalizing message and I am eager to collaborate with filmmakers who are looking to make their stories memorable and compelling!
