I was born in 2001 in Arizona. I grew up with very musical siblings, listening to them practice all day. I grew up watching Studio Ghibli movies, and I loved the soundtracks. I was inspired by my siblings, and movies I grew up watching to pick up an instrument as well. At the age of 8 I started to play the trumpet. I have been in Band for most my life, and now play in my church's orchestra. Only recently have I picked up music composition (two years ago), through the discovery of Musescore. Although I haven't picked music composition to pursue in college, it is still my strongest passion. And I will continue to compose for the rest of my life.
