Even more than playing games, I love to be a part of telling the story of the game. As a kid I spent plenty of time playing games like Megaman and Contra on my NES. When I was twelve I saved up what seemed like a small fortune and pre ordered FFVII, which was my exciting introduction into the world of RPG’s.
As a teenager I continued to play games. I loved scrolling shooters like Einhander, fighting games like Tekken, platformers like Castlevania Symphony of the Night, and of course RPG’s! Despite the time and attention I gave these games, I started spending more and more time dreaming up worlds, landscapes, levels, characters and battles and composing music for those games and scenes in my head. I began submitting my compositions and getting pieces performed. I then went to music school and learned how to better compose and produce music for video games and other media.
Now, that is what I do! I use music to help developers tell their stories and draw players into their games. I would love to hear about your game project and talk about the possibility of collaborating together!
