He started composing in 2007 at age 22 with no prior training or musical background and primarily studied the works of composers like James Horner, John Williams, and Hans Zimmer. In 2012, he released his first album The First Five Years, which included a 20-minute piece titled Dreams of Flight. In 2018, Denny began work on his first indie game, based on music he composed of the same name called Lightyears from Home. Like with music, he taught himself thru online resources and experimentation with Unreal Engine, Maya, and other tools.

He also plays tennis with two rackets, fears boredom, and rarely sleeps.

Autodidactic Polymaths     Imagine a self-sustaining company that generates revenue year after year on its own with no work done by any human being. Autodidactic is such a company, where revenue is automated by a fully autonomous AI and the humans can focus solely on creative endeavors
     Our team consists of self-taught individuals each skilled in many fields. All of us are equally artists, engineers, and mad scientists at heart. We grew up online as gamers and have gone on to treat the world as our sandbox. We all share a hunger and curiosity that comes only from interest in both programming and finance, math and literature, art and science,

polymath and autodidact

     A typical day can go from creating games, music, and short films to building bots that take on the stock market. If our projects change the world so be it, but we bow down to no one. We've built an engine that lets us tackle any project we can think of, pursue any idea we can dream of, and we’re looking for others who, like us, have a strong sense of adventure, a healthy level of insanity, and a genuine desire to take over the world... just because we can. Bahaha!

Note we are spread across the world and divide time across New York, California, Norway, and Japan.
