After a quick tour with the US Army's 101st Airborne, a life-altering near-death experience, and later a film scoring degree from Berklee College of Music - I wandered into New York City in the late '90s and immersed myself in the film and TV music world, where aside from being a freelance composer, I've worked with great companies such as Hi-Fi Productions, MusicBox, ICON Trailer Music, ole Media Management, Jingle Punks, Oovra, and APM Music.
Over the past two decades I've composed and produced original music for many popular shows and series. Some of my more notable work is featured in 60 Days In, Pawn Stars, Parking Wars, Dog the Bounty Hunter, and Family Plots (A&E), Haunting Evidence (truTV), Exiled (MTV), Mob Wives, Black Ink Crew, and I Want To Work For Diddy (VH1). See the Shows link for more.
I've composed original score for numerous documentary films, including American Experience "The Gilded Age" (dir. Sarah Colt), G.I. Jews (dir. Lisa Ades), Bad Blood: A Cautionary Tale (dir. Marilyn Ness), FEAT (dir. Deborah Carr and Bradley Carr), and Valentino: The Last Emperor (dir. R.J. Cutler).
On occasion, I'm a producer for Museum Music, a record label in New York. I've produced original recordings with performing artists Maureen McGovern, and Ann Hampton Callaway, as well as TV, film and Broadway actors John Cullum, and Donna Murphy.
I actively produce an advertising music label called Spot On.
And as an honor and privilege, I periodically collaborate with Jon Anderson (from YES) on some developing musical projects.
