Yo! I’m Steve—a video game composer from Philadelphia. My background is rooted in folk and rock, and this reflects in my compositions—I cherish bright, colorful, and earthy sounds guided by strong melodies.
Currently I’m working on an open source renaissance music pack, funded by the Auf Geht’s grant, and you can check out my other projects and music below. I’m always looking for new projects though, so I’d love to hear about your game and collaborate!
Aside from game composition, I’m also a songwriter/lyricist who’s toured the EU and AU with Arna Rox, playing large festivals, legendary bars, and street corners alike. I also teach guitar, piano, and composition lessons.
When I’m not working, you can catch me reading books, solving crosswords, drinking beers, petting dogs, and bootstrapping my culinary skills one Allrecipe at a time.
