I'm a gigging guitarist and multi-instrumental composer for tv, film, ads, podcasts, and radio. My albums are on Universal, BMG, EMI, and Warner/Chappell. My credits include two Emmy winning programs on PBS, NPR’s Morning Edition and Invisibilia, Animal Planet, Logo, Ovation, and international tv. I’ve scored ads for Vogue, AAA Insurance, Dropbox, Eddie Bauer, and more. I've made music for museums, an iTunes Editor's Choice film, and Jane Goodall's MasterClass (Apple App of the Day/featured on Jimmy Fallon).  My music is in films screened at over 50 festivals like SXSW, AFI DOCS, and Festival de Cannes.
