Brooklyn, New York
I'm a composer of music for film, television and new media. Also an accomplished songwriter, producer, re-mixer and multi-instrumentalist, I currently reside in Brooklyn, NY. I'm also a former principal member of the band Mercury Rev (1998-2010).
In 2010, I began to work independently with a primary focus on music for film and television. To date I've scored 2 feature-length films as well as a number of shorts. My latest work in television and media is featured in commercial campaigns from the likes of BMW, Google, "Killer Queen" by Katy Perry, Novartis and Got Milk?, to name just a few.
You can see a number of these commercial spots and hear additional music samples via the link below:
