As a composer, my mission is to write unique music that adds a fourth dimension to the narrative experience by supporting story, enhancing visuals and communicating the unspoken. I enjoy finding themes, and sonic signatures that subconsciously connect a story to its audience.  However, 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.
