Born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya, I grew up in a different musical environment than most.

From an early age I knew I wanted to pursue my love of music. Despite the limitations of living far from a thriving music industry, I invested myself into writing and recording my own music independently. I engaged the local music scene, performing wherever I could, and my first recorded song became a number one single on the local radio charts. In the fall of 2013, I moved to Nashville, TN where I studied Commercial Music at Belmont University. 

I soon scored my first short film (The Weak Force), and have since focused in on my passion for bringing my music to visual and interactive media. Whether it's a lush orchestral piece to accompany a scene, a fun pop tune to breath energy into an advertisement, or music that adapts to the action of a video game, I love bringing stories to life with a robust, powerful score.

While currently based out of a home studio in Nashville, my work is not limited to my location. I enjoy working and communicating with creators everywhere to make something fresh and unique. Need music for your next project? Let's work together.
