About Me

IMG_3187 crop2

Hello! My name is Nate and I am a Los Angeles-based composer and musician.

I've had the opportunity to work  on a number of projects including independent film, audiobooks, and animated shorts, and I also perform work such as orchestration, arranging, and copying.

From 2011 to 2013 I composed the original soundtrack for the Swordspoint series of audiobooks written by fantasy author Ellen Kushner and produced by Neil Gaiman. 

From 2013 to 2014 I was an assistant to composers Craig Stuart Garfinkle and Eímear Noone for their work on World of WarCraft: Warlords of Draenor, and from 2013-2016 I was one of Eimear's assistant conductors for the Hollywood-based community orchestra Symphony 47. 

As part of my work from 2016-2017 for JoAnn Kane Music Service, fine purveyors of sheet music everywhere, I had the opportunity to work on a number of major motion pictures, including: Fantastic Beasts, Trolls, Captain Underpants, Valerian, Allied, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as well as TV shows such as The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Bates Motel, and Empire.

I received my MM in Composition from California State University, Long Beach, where I studied orchestral composition and film scoring, and I was an SCL Mentee in 2013.

My music copying and engraving portfolio can be found here.
