Personal Quote:

There's a part of myself always resisting the urge to make pretty violin music, not that I have that urge. I don't. I'm so glad there are other people out there making that music so I don't have to. See more »


Two songs he composed sampled their melodies from two Super Mario Bros. games. The first one, "Hey Dad", samples the Coin Heaven theme from Super Mario Bros. 3 while "An Arrow in the Side of Final Fantasy" samples the Star Maze theme from Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins.
