Music has always been a huge part of my life. I’ve been playing piano, writing, and performing for as long as I can remember.
If you need music for a film or videogame, get in touch.
I worked on an original score for an animated excerpt of a Kurt Vonnegut short story, “The Drone King”, discovered and published posthumously by The Atlantic.
Arts at MIT
I composed an original score for a hyperlapse video celebrating the Arts department at MIT.
Al Jazeera America
From 2014–2015 I worked with Al Jazeera America on a number of projects, including the opening music for three shows, and the audio identity for the Al Jazeera America Presents brand.

Over the last decade I’ve written dozens of pieces in a wide variety of 20th century idioms.
As a pianist, I have a particular penchant for piano-focused pop, rock, jazz, and chamber music. That being said I’ve composed pieces for orchestra, jazz orchestra, chamber ensembles, jazz combos, rock groups, duets, solo instruments, and a cappella groups.
Releasing music isn’t exactly my strong suit though, so I haven’t published much here the last few years. I hope to rectify this in the 2020s. Anyhow, here’s a small tasting of the type of stuff I like to write.

My greatest musical interest is in film scoring. I live to find the perfect composition to enhance a dramatic narrative.
The task always feels impossible—perfectly craft the music to fit the story, while simultaneously creating something beautiful in and of itself. If that weren’t enough, often the music must accomplish this subliminally as to avoid overshadowing the film itself.
Nevertheless, this is what I continue to strive to perfect. Here are a few short films I’ve scored.
