Composer & Arranger
“Ah, music," he said, wiping his eyes. "A magic beyond all we do here!”
- Albus Dumbeldore
Hello! Welcome to my music page.
I'm a nerdy mom who loves fantasy and composing music is my heroine's journey.
I'm a composer and 3-time nominee for Best Music in Utah Film/Music Awards. I've composed and produced the original book soundtrack to the New York Times Best Selling Series, Green Rider, by Kristen Britain. This idea expanded into the Green Rider Book Soundtrack & Art Book project, which raised almost $100,000 through the combined efforts of crowdfunding and eBay bidding. The Green Rider fans rallied around the idea of music for their favorite series and we expanded the project to include artwork, accessories, cosplays, events, and other unique items that brought this beloved fantasy world to life.
I've written music for Salt Lake Pops, Pretty Darn Funny web-series, commercials for businesses, and alternative pop artists including Robyn Cage (under the remixing name of Kristin Royal.) I also wrote music for Kaladin, a book soundtrack that raised over $100,000 on Kickstarter to create music inspired by Brandon Sanderson's famous novel The Way of Kings.
I'm best described as creative, whimsical, adventerous, and optimistic and that has defined my musical style. Eager to pursue my dreams of writing music, I went to school for music composition. The youngest of six students accepted into the Utah Valley University's Film Scoring Internship, I observed the music process for huge blockbuster films. There I received life-changing insight and advice from prolific composers Hans Zimmer, James Newton Howard, and Chris P. Bacon.
(Yes, I was so excited!)
Music is my passion. I love telling stories and adventures through music. You can find me these days on Patreon having more adventures and you are welcome to join in the quest!
I am forever grateful for the endless support and inspiration from my
family, friends, God, and musical inspirations.
Take a look around and join me on my heroine's journey
GREEN RIDER ALBUM PROJECT
I've undertaken a great adventure! I wrote one of the first ever fantasy book soundtracks. This book soundtrack is inspired by Kristen Britain's Green Rider . This album will tell the story of a young girl's journey from runaway schoolgirl into the heroine the kingdom of Sacoridia needs. It's an album that will appeal to both lifelong fans and new fans who love worlds like Middle Earth, Narnia, and Hogwarts. Join in the adventure!
