Hello! My name is Nathanael. Born and raised in Massachusetts, I currently reside in Long Beach, California where I work as a freelance 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 by fantasy author Ellen Kushner, produced by Neil Gaiman. From 2013 to 2014 I was an assistant to composers Craig Stuart Garfinkle and Eímear Noone for the their work on World of WarCraft: Warlords of Draenor. Since 2013 I have also been an assistant conductor for the Hollywood-based community orchestra, Symphony 47.
I received my MM in Composition from California State University, Long Beach, where I studied orchestral composition and film scoring.
I was an SCL Mentee in 2013.
