Later on, he shifted gears to France to study composition at Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régionale d’Annecy, where he collaborated with directors from Cinédoc Paris Films and on animation projects from ArtFx Studios, École Pivaut and Gobelins L’école De L’image.

There he worked closely with Christopher Young ( Hellraiser, Drag Me To Hell, Spider Man3), Garry Schyman (BioShock, Dante’s Inferno), Bruce Broughton, Jack Smalley and was personally mentored by James Newton Howard (The Sixth Sense, King Kong, The Village, Maleficent).
Writing for picture gives him the freedom and the expressive domain to combine his love for music with movies.
