In creating music, I seek both the personal and the universal. I’ve had the privilege of writing for a variety of mediums such as film, tv, the concert hall, commercials, and musical theater over the years, but regardless of the medium and at the core of it all is music’s power and ability to uplift, terrify, comfort, engage, and provoke which continually challenges and excites me to write.
My inspirations come from God, stories, beauty, ugliness, cool sounds, and mysterious sea creatures. And in music, I have found the joy and freedom of breaking away and experimenting with the unknown. Exploring freedom within the structures of film, a theatre piece or ensemble allows the opportunity for me to musically interact with images, color, dialogue, sounds and thought provoking ideas. Every project is an unique journey and exciting chance to collaborate and create.
Please visit my company Chaos Theory Music if you are interested in licensing music from indie artists I support as well as an eclectic array of K-Pop and Korean World Music.
