Honored to Win the “Excellence in Artistry Award” by Black in Gaming Foundation!

March 26, 2024

I’m incredibly honored and grateful to announce that I’ve been awarded the 2024 “Excellence in Artistry Award” by the Black In Gaming Foundation!

This recognition holds immense significance for me. Over the past 13 years, I’ve tirelessly pursued my passion for creating great video game music, despite it often being overlooked by some developers. Whether it’s the mindset of the afterthought or simply not wanting to pay. This award vindicates the importance of this aspect, which contributes significantly to the gaming experience.

Receiving this award during the Black in Gaming Awards show last week Tuesday, March 19th was truly a memorable moment. It’s a testament to my tenacity, dedication and relentless advocacy for my craft.

I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has supported me along this journey – your belief in me, my work, and my drive means the world to me. Congratulations to all the nominees as well.
