I’ve decided to actively seek out scoring and composition jobs, instead of just dreaming of one day getting paid to write music and hoping they’ll come to me (it doesn’t work as well as you might think). Mainly, it finally clicked in my brain that I could actually seek them, and potentially make a living through active freelance musicianship. A catalyst for this decision was being hired to score The Vindication of Ronald Clay. This commission, a part time job, and some prospects, have allowed me to “graduate” from my position as audio tech at the Fairfield Arts and Convention Center. It finally clicked and makes sense to me, in a practical day-to-day way, how I can go about living the life I want to live and pursuing my dream career. Well, David, you may ask, how’s that? Well I realized that a job writing music is… tada! A job. How do you get a job? You go looking and making friends and applying, building experience and reputation. So as part of going and making this type of connection, I slapped a résumé right on this site. It may need some tweaking but feel free to check it out. If you need original music for something, let me know. Wish me luck!
