My mission is to find unique music that adds a fourth dimension to the narrative experience by supporting story, and enhancing visuals to communicate the unspoken. I enjoy finding themes and sonic signatures that subconsciously connect a story to its audience, and most importantly, I strive to realize the vision of whomever I am working with through collaboration, and a free exchange of ideas. With a combined twenty years of professional experience as a performer in Phantom Planet, a songwriter for EMI/SONYATV, and composer on projects from HBO series to Sundance features, I have a wide range of tools and colors from which to draw to tailor a special sound for each project.
