Since the beginning of 2014, I have had the pleasure of being the ambassador for the MFA Music Composition for the Screen Program. It was a great experience communicating with prospective students, attending school events, getting to know the other ambassadors and staff, and writing this blog. I moved to LA two months ago for the semester in LA, graduated from my program after two years of study, and just recently found work assisting a Hollywood composer. My classmates and I have come a long way since starting the program in 2013. I very am excited to see what our futures hold.
