It has been my pleasure to celebrate “Destiny” by making this album of original piano arrangements, comprising the first three years of the game and of our community.
Listening and playing music is how I process deep emotions. It brings everything I am feeling to the surface so that I can feel it, reflect on it, and move forward. The music of “Destiny” came at the most turbulent point of my life - my father passed away and I went through a divorce - two “deaths” in the span of a short time. The soundtrack to “Destiny” and the process of arranging these pieces for piano was a lifeline to me. Tracks like “Remembrance” helped me feel my Father near me, while pieces like “Bow to No One” and “Rise of Iron” helped me discover who I am at my core, refining and heightening my strengths in spades. For that, I will forever be grateful for the music of “Destiny”. It will always be the most important soundtrack of my life.

Thank you to the composers that worked on the music of the “Destiny” universe - Marty O’Donnell, C. Paul Johnson, Skye Lewin, and most of all - someone I am proud to call a friend - Mike Salvatori; you have been so gracious and supportive in my endeavors, and I can’t thank you enough. Thank you to the friends I’ve made at Bungie and Activision who have made me feel “important” in the midst of such greatness! A very HUGE thank you to the Destiny community - the Destiny subreddit, the content creators who have included me and my work in YouTube videos and on your podcasts, and the “Destiny” fans that have become my family over the years…I love you all so much! Thank you to my friend Sean Francis, who pushed me to do this and made it happen. I could NOT have made this album without you. Thank you to my clan, Outdoor Cats, for all the games, laughter, and for carrying me to The Lighthouse so many times! Thank you to all of my Twitch subscribers, moderators, and regulars…you're making my dreams come true, night after night. Special thank yous to my Mother and my Sisters for their unconditional love and inspiration, I couldn’t ask for a better family. Thank you to my late Father; if I can one day be half the musician and person that he was, I will consider myself extremely lucky. And lastly, thank you to my three wonderful children. I love you all more than I could ever articulate. You are the reason music even matters.
