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 learning different instruments and how to record them. I engaged the local music scene, performing wherever I could. I eventually moved to Nashville, TN where I studied Commercial Music at Belmont University and fell in love with composing for visual and interactive media

In the years since I have created custom scores for video games, short films, advertisements, documentaries, and trailers. Whether it's a lush orchestral piece to accompany a scene, a fun electronic 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.
