I'm a guitarist playing around 150 gigs annually and a composer making production for Universal, BMG, EMI, and Warner/Chappell. My music is in shows on Animal Planet, PBS, Logo, Ovation, NPR, and internationally on SAT. 1, TVE La 2, and KAN. I’ve soundtracked ads for Vogue, AAA Insurance, Dropbox, Eddie Bauer, and more. I've written music for films screened at over 50 festivals like AFI DOCS, SXSW, Human Rights Watch Film Fest. My other work ranges from Jane Goodall's MasterClass to museum exhibits, an Apple App of the Day, an iTunes Editor's Choice film, a project featured on Jimmy Fallon, and projects praised by The New York Times, People, Variety, Forbes, GQ, The Hollywood Reporter, and more.
