"Do you have a track you're genuinely excited about, but can't shake the feeling it's missing something? I can help with that!" -Me. Whether it's a vocal harmony, a guitar, string or synth part, or a few extra effects the liven up the mix, I'll make sure you're getting the most out of your music. And I'll totally score your film, video game, etc.

I received an MFA in Film Music Composition from UNCSA in 2018. Despite the name of my degree, the education I received was mostly technical. Composing for visual media is a highly self-sufficient profession today, one which requires mastery of DAWs (namely Logic, Cubase and Pro Tools), virtual instruments, mixing/mastering plugins and recording techniques. And these are things I'm well-versed in.

In addition I have been writing and recording music for nearly two decades in one form or another. Though I've predominantly operated as a solo artist under the name "He Thought Of Planes," I've concluded that my strengths are much better suited for collaboration. So I've since put greater priority on helping others realize their visions rather than be fixated on my own.

My specializations are: composing music for visual media, producing (i.e. helping take your music to the next level), mixing, guitar (I'm not Eddie Van Halen but I can record most parts and write ya something interesting), string arrangement, synth selection, synthestration, drum programming, and general audio mixing & editing.
