About

I love instrumental and film music. It's why I got into music as a kid. Now, I'm living my dream as a full-time guitarist performing well over 100 times annually and a film music composer signed to Dynamic Music, a BMG Production Music label.

My music has been in tv shows on networks like PBS, Logo, La 2 TVE (Spain), and in movies screened at many festivals like AFI DOCS, SXSW, Human Rights Watch Film Fest, and in podcasts by Gimlet Media and NPR.

I’ve also scored music for ad campaigns spanning TV, radio, OOH ("Out Of Home" advertising), social, and digital for companies like Vogue, AAA Insurance, Dropbox, and others. My music has been the soundtrack to museum exhibits, an Apple App of the Day, a project featured on Jimmy Fallon, and projects praised by The New York Times, Variety, Forbes, GQ, Inc. Magazine, and The Hollywood Reporter.
