I grew up in Provo, UT with 8 kids in my family. I began playing piano at 4 and trombone at 12. I began singing in youth choirs at 5. At Timpview High School I began writing orchestral music at age 15, and won several awards. I also placed this in the nation at discus.
In college I studied film scoring, jazz, and popular music at UCLA, the University of Utah and UVU, and ended up with internships working with James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer.
I began winning awards for my music in feature films from national and international film festivals.
In 2013 I found dedicated the Salt Lake Pops Orchestra and amassed millions of views. I've worked with Lindsey Stirling, Alex Boye, Madilyn Paige, Shaun Barrowes, Alfred Bowe, David Osmond, Jesse Funk, Jenny Oaks Baker, Aaliyah Rose, and many other artists and YouTube stars.
I recently began a youth Pops Orchestra called EPOCH, and created a business helping musicians get on the National Billboard lists called the Billboard Hot 100 Program.
I'm currently training to throw discus at the 2020 Olympic games in Tokyo, and having a blast getting ready.
My wife Emily, sons Liam and Peter, and 1 year old daughter Genevieve are my muses.
