As a kid in East Tennessee, Nathan rode a sweet bike while replaying the theme from Airwolf in his head. The world was full of excitement and possibility. Somewhere along these quixotic after-school adventures emerged a nascent thought– music can take you on a journey. Nathan has been committed to this journey ever since. Writing scores for film, TV, and video game projects, Nathan is continually excited to see where the journey leads.
Today, Nathan lives with his wife in Los Angeles and continues to ride a sweet bike.
