Music written for various film, webseries, and video game projects I have worked on.

I believe that good stories deserve great music, and I believe that music has a capacity beyond that of brilliant graphics, special effects, or thrilling stunts to influence emotion and establish the tone of a work.  Just as a seasoned actor can convey volumes about a character without uttering a line of dialogue, good music can invisibly tell the audience who to trust, who to fear, what is dangerous, and what is inviting.  It can underscore punchlines and action sequences.  It can establish emotional links between characters and the audience, and help storytellers stretch those ties to the breaking point.  Good music does these things.  Great music will stay with you after the credits roll.
