I am very pleased and excited to announce the release of the film “Beginners” on Friday June 4th 2011! This will be the first major film release in which i am a credited composer! It is a stunning film by acclaimed director Mike Mills. The cast is marvelous and features Christopher Plummer, Ewan McGregor, and Melanie Laurent. You can peruse the trailer in the video page of this site. Please go see this wonderful film.

Just finished the score for the new Starz mini series “BOSS” starring Kelsey Grammer and directed by Gus Van Sant. It debuts October 21st! I was fortunate enough to work on every episode as a musician/synthesist and have two original pieces licensed for use in two episodes! The second season has already been picked up which is very exciting.


Currently working with the Rhythm Roots All Stars on a new De La Soul record! I am writing and producing with both bands in a collective effort spearheaded by Davey C. form the Rhythm Roots! It promises to be a fantastic record!


Been awhile since putting forth an update on my musical activities. Recently finished “Boss” season 2 with my great friend and collaborator Brian Reitzell. There will be a soundtrack being released in conjunction with this final season as well featuring artists such as Mark Hollis, Robert Plant, Jim James, and Paul Buchanon. Also recently worked on the new Gus Van Sandt film “Promised Land”. Had music licensed for the film and did some string and brass arrangements for other licensed works in the film. This past spring and summer I completed two scores for young Russian filmmakers. Not sure if these films will be released but I will be posting some of the music on this site soon.

Currently I am working once again with Brian Reitzell on an excellent new NBC series called “Hannibal”. The music is reminiscent of the work we did on “30 Days of Night” and, in fact, director David Slade oversaw the making of the first episode of this macabre and thrilling new series.

About to start Season three of “Hannibal” for NBC. Seasons one and two now available on DVD.
