When I was growing up I was surrounded by classic rock and blues but had no real interest in music. But at the age of 17 I accidentally discovered a program that would do nothing short of revitalize and revolutionize my musical hobby – Reason, and I began to take the craft of music creation very seriously.

In December of 2002 I removed every item from my closet and began to construct what would become my first studio. For hours on end I would be glaring into two CRT monitors and tweaking virtual knobs. I could never have guessed that within just a few months, my hobby would land me my first commercial job.

In April of 2003 Yesse America from Khaeon Games offered me the chance to compose one track for Alpha Black Zero, I ended up composing five tracks in all. In a decision to improve my talents and enhance my knowledge, in May of 2003 I decided to enroll in the Audio Production course offered at Hennepin Technical College.

In August of 2003 I began my college career that would involve achieving the President’s List three times and earning a 3.60 GPA. I have since completed my internship requirements, partaken in the graduation ceremony and been declared an ‘Audio Production Specialist.’

I have since recently completed my second enrollment in college and have received Associates of Applied Sciences Degrees for Computer Support / Network Administration and Software Development in Spring of 2011.

My first post-collegiate job was for a local grocer where I was involved in the support and enhancement of their internally developed point-of-sale system as well as their inventory and ordering systems.

I am currently employed as a Junior Developer at a company that develops, manages and maintains innovative solutions within the affordable housing market.
