I'm an audio engineer and composer, specializing in film and video games. Recently graduates from Berklee College of Music and I'm now working really hard to establish myself in the industry. Because of my lack of experience, happy to work for cheap.
I'm AJ and I'm a establishing audio engineer and composer for film and video games. I recently graduates from Berklee College of Music and am now based in LA.
As an engineer, I specialize in cinematic music. I primarily work for composers that need mixing and mastering done on music they wrote for a project. I am skilled at mixing orchestral samples or a combination of both samples and live instruments. Also, good at mixing electronic elements with orchestral instruments.
As a composer, I work mostly in the video game world where much of the music is a hybrid of electronic music and orchestra. However, I am confident in writing in many different contemporary styles like rock, metal, hip-hop, and jazz. Check out my SoundCloud for some examples of my music.
