About Film Composer Steve Gomez

Steve Gomez was born in 1974, in the live music capital of the world—Austin, Texas.  He grew up with a household full of various music stylings. As a child, Steve enjoyed watching his grandfather sing Spanish songs while playing the guitar. His parents also had a trumpet and organ in the home. The organ was Steve’s first learned instrument, followed by a guitar when he was 15 years old. Two years later, he was tickling the ivory on his very first keyboard.

Known as “Elvis” by the principal and “Rock Star” by students, in high school, Steve enjoyed playing a lot of heavy metal music but developed a love for the movie soundtrack stylings. Often, the “metal heads” would tease Steve for the softer classical styles of film soundtracks he liked to play.

After graduations Steve enrolled in the Radio, Television and Film program at Austin Community College, in Austin, Texas. He took courses in television production and later found himself teaching community video production classes at the local public access television station. Steve won several local video production awards including first place in a music video category, in which he was congratulated by Congressman Lloyd Doggett.  Steve also submitted a contest entry to KLRU TV PBS Austin for the My American Family contest.  Steve placed first in the contest and his production was aired during a KLRU pledge drive.  Later Steve was hired at Fox 7 News where he worked for three years before freelancing as a camera operator and editor for his own company.
During these years Steve also freelanced seasonally as an audio video technician for the Texas House of Representatves.  There he walked along side TX state officials and represenatives including serving  then  Governor Rick Perry in the audio/video studio on one occassion.  Steve has always been an award winner.  During his time at the TX House, he was awarded for his work on computer scripting closed captioning for the TX Kids House Real Player video by then Speaker of the House Tom Craddick with a TX flag.

Freelancing video work was fun, rewarding but not always steady. As bills continued piling in and life priorities were changings, Steve felt a need to walk away from television production life. In 2010, he found a new career that allowed him to interact with customers and gave him experiences that lead to better positions. Soon after love was in the air and Steve found himself traveling to Virginia to be with his long distance girlfriend.  It was a new adventure for Steve.  Steve had never lived out of state.   He also had never flown on a plane before.  Nor had he lived with the opposite sex before in a relationship.  But long distance and in person aren't always the same.  Steve and his girlfriend mutually agreed they would remain friends but would not work out in romance.  Steve packed his bags and came back to TX and quickly found a great job.  Now with an excellent job, he was content with what he had. And focussed on his career and family.  Years later though, the love of music was still deep in his heart and soul, so he decided to enroll in college music classes. In May 2017, Steve went to work for a well-known cable internet provider and was enrolled at the Berklee College of Music in a master certificate program for film music scoring. While working a full-time job and going to school, Steve was also participating in composing music for contests and seeking film projects. He has also been in contact with several music libraries to sell his music.  Steve's most recent achievement is winning the prize of honorable mention in the Indie Film Gathering's international film scoring competition.  In 2018 Steve has already won honorable mention in the Horror Hotel film music competition as well.   But life was not happy at his cable provider job.  Though he earned two IT certifications while at this job, life was not the same.  Steve had left an excellent job to get back in tech support.  But  money was tight.  Life was stressful.  Steve had been searching seriously for a new position since December 2017 for various reason, money included.    He wasn't happy and new change must come and happen.  Not only for his own sake, but the sake of his entire family.  He greatly desired to see better days again. It was now July 2018 and Steve applied to a healthcare company for a Help Desk role.  To Steve's delite he was offered the role and accepted te position.   Steve is very grateful.  When one door closes and a chapter ends, the new door opens and the next chapter begins.  Steve believes this is likely to be the best job in all ways he's ever had so far.

Steve is a very spiritually minded person.  His beief in Jesus Christ guides much of his life and decisions.   He admits he's had his mistakes and failures.   But he tries to live by Grace not perfection.  Everyone deserves another chance.  Steve is also very family oriented.   In 2018 Steve hopes to spend more time with friends and has goals he hopes to reach.  Steve has also intereset in things like interpretation of dreams.  You'd be surprised how many of Steve's dreams come true.  Steve has also recently moved into an apartment.  Currently he is helping to sell the family's home in Manor, TX.  Again Steve is grateful for new beginnings.  It's like a second chance in life.  New apartment. New Job.    Steve hopes to save money and finish school at Berklee as well, only haveing 3 semesters to finish.  Steve  hopes for love and to find someone who is ready for commitment.  Life is short.   All as it has been for so many years is ending.  All is beginning as life changes and moves on.   It's the next chapter.  The story continues. 999 to 1111 for those who understand.   Steve feels blessed: 888.  All things work togeter for those who love God.  God has definitely provided for Steve's needs in the transitions of his life.  Life is a journey.  And sometimes Steve has felt in his heart what is coming, but sometimes he can't always see the end.  But in the end we arrive at our destaination, changed by that journey.  Only to find it's not the end, only a stop along the way.   I wish you all well.  Light the flame in your heart and let it burn, like twin flames dancing in the night.  God bless. -  Steve Gomez
