I have many years of experience as a music composer/conductor, MIDI Specialist, television videotape editor, post-production supervisor, and voice-over experience. I am a full member of the Muscogee Creek Indian tribe in Oklahoma and of French, Creek, and Cherokee descent. Member of Musician’s Union Local #47 (Los Angeles), ASCAP, The American Composers Forum, The First Nation Composers Initiative, NACUSA, and The American Music Center.
My educational background includes a Master's Degree in Composition from the Eastman School of Music. My professional background includes work as a composer of both commercial and 'classical' music and work as a television video tape editor for several companies.
I have won first prize in two international MIDI realization competitions, composer for Clio award-winning graphics, recipient of 3 grants to computer-record the classical music of Native American composers, and three CDs of holiday, commercial, and classical music.
My current focus is on recording music using computer-based programs and sound libraries. A demonstration of this work is available at http://www.rmamusic.com/MIDI%20Demos.htm .
