So YEAH, ABOUT ME.

INTRO

I am an independent composer and music producer currently residing on the border of PA/NJ, about an hour and a half drive from NYC or Philadelphia. I work in person and remotely for clients worldwide, in my project studio and/or other locations. I am available to work on films, records, ad campaigns, mobile apps, TV/web shows, musicals, editing and mixing projects, concert commissions, VO production, etc. - any project requiring music or audio production. I am also available to develop and produce recording artists in many styles.

 

PHILOSOPHY

As an artist, I consider myself a Romantic Individualist. I create the music I am honestly inspired to create. I believe in and am committed to originality. As a composer and music producer I have a strong melodic focus. Any music with a strong identity must have a strong voice, i.e., the melody, and melodic arrangement and embellishment.

When it comes to making records, I am a versatile producer with a broad sense of style. Always working with pop sensibility and an edge. When engineering, although not exactly a purist, I prefer an organic approach and to preserve the realism of performances. As an audiophile I pay attention to tone and vibe closely during the recording process. I have the equipment and skill set to bring out the emotions of an artist and song, and to produce and mix records that will both have relevance in the current market and longevity into the future. 

EXPERIENCE

My experience ranges from classical piano lessons at the age of four, to playing in rock, ska, jazz and indie/emo bands throughout my teenage years. Sometimes on guitar, sometimes on bass, always singing. I made my first record (well, cassette tape) at the age of 14. I attended Berklee College of Music from 1999 to 2003, studying a variety of disciplines and graduated with a BA in Music Production and Engineering. After school I started a small label and produced several bands until I became heavily interested in classical film scoring. I immersed myself in traditional composition and orchestration for a few years and began getting jobs scoring to picture. Since I've come to appreciate writing, arranging, recording and performing both classical and pop styles alike.
