At just two years old Dorian began playing the piano. His infatuation with the instrument soon blossomed into a full blown love of music. This love motivated him to learn more about music, not just how to produce it through piano, cello, bass, guitar, drums violin and vocals in bands and orchestras but also the history of music; the methods that could be used to achieve musical goals, both technically and instrumentally; the various genres and techniques dating back through Renaissance and Baroque eras to modern music; musical theory and more.
Today Dorian is a composer, instrumentalist, songwriter and activist whose extensive study of music and eclectic background give him a unique appreciation and view on music that is perfectly suited to the needs of modern film makers and performance groups.

His background in audio engineering gives him a unique edge in the ability to create dynamic and contemporary sounds and recordings.
