Richard Tsutomu Williams graduated from Brigham Young University in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in media music studies and a minor in Japanese.

In 2010, Williams won a student Emmy for music composition for his ragtag piano and Dixieland jazz score for the animated film Mashed.

The following year, Williams composed pieces as part of the Heloise Crista Project. This project was part of the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts. The project involved over sixty-five collaborators--including student choreographers and composers, faculty choreographers and composers, lighting and set designers, student cinematographers, dancers, and more. The project culminated with a themed dance concert, entitled Transformations, which was presented at four sold-out performances.

His musical score for the BYU animated short Chasm won first place at the 2014 College Television Awards. Williams is a member of the musical group TREN, which consists of BYU students and alumni.
