    International Gold Awards: Elevating Artistic Talent and Vindicating Creative Choices
    Transitioning from a corporate career to film composition later in life was a bold move requiring investment in time and money to obtain a Masters of Music in Film Scoring from a prestigious school. Thankfully, the International Gold Awards provided the perfect platform for my artistic journey. Their professional venue not only recognized my value but also provided vindication for the risk my filmmaker took when hiring me as her composer. This festival celebrates diversity and unconventional paths to success, offering structured support and invaluable networking. In short, it's a must for any artist seeking recognition and growth in the industry.
