Since 2004 I have been creating scores for short films, usually for local film festivals and competitions. 


I have also had the opportunity to create music for several companies and commercials over the years.


My most recent band and one of my most enjoyable music experiences.  Folk/Blues/Pop trio from Bloomington.


My time in Korea was made even more memorable by being the drummer and producer for the Strategic Sideburns.


Aside from film and commercial work, I've also been involved composing music for a variety of other projects.


I have been giving piano and percussion lessons for over 15 years, so if you're in need of a teacher, let me know!

Music has always been an integral part of my life.  From playing the piano, to teaching lessons, to writing compositions and playing in bands, music is a necessity for me.  If you find yourself in need of music for a film, if you're looking for someone to jam with, or if you want to learn to play percussion or piano, I am always interested. You can send me a message for more information and I am currently based out of Los Angeles, CA.
