Growing up I spent an enormous amount of time playing video games, escaping into a game’s world and getting lost in it’s beauty and complexity. Still fascinated by games today I am particularly passionate about the audio experience players receive in games.
I am fascinated with manipulating noise and sound in my music so I am always looking to blend sound design with traditional composition techniques to help express emotion.
Currently I am composing the music for Ring of Pain, developed by Twice Different, which is a roguelike card game in a dark and twisted world, and providing additional music tracks for Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun Rising, a full conversion modification for the original Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. Previously I worked with Goblin Hammer Games studio creating SFXs for their upcoming farming game Harvest Hands.
During Melbourne International Games Week 2019 I had the privileged of being one of the local games composers to be invited to be a part of underScore and have their works performed live by a 13-piece orchestra.
My love of audio also lead me to study Bachelor of Composition at Box hill Institute where I focused on orchestration and arrangement, music for film and music for games. In combination with my background in IT and experience working in software companies I now combine my passion of audio and technology by providing audio services to the video games industry.
