My music — including two full-length weirdo-rock records and dozens of film and commercial scores — has premiered at The Academy of Arts and Sciences, Brooklyn Academy of Music, WNYC’s Greene Space and at a growing number of international film festivals as well as on MTV, VH1, ABC and Italy’s Sky Italia. Recent performances include the Pop Montreal 2011 Festival where I opened for seminal post-punkers The Raincoats, a recent tour of Poland and an opening slot for the Kronos Quartet. I hold my M.A. in Composition from New York University.
In 2013, I was a featured performer in David Lang’s “Young Voices” series at Carnegie Hall and in 2015, performed music of San Fermin’s Ellis Ludwig-Leone for New York City Ballet at the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Other recent commissions include music for ETHEL string quartet, Colorado Symphony orchestrations for Olga Bell of the Dirty Projectors and music for the new-music collective Hotel Elefant, for which I play 6 and 12-string electric guitar.
I’ve also worked extensively in scoring and sound design for radio: I produce New York Public Radio’s Q2 Music, where I script and score strange and arty interstitials, edit and package live performances, and oversee all of the station's daily programming and special features. Q2's Meet the Composer podcast - which I help produce - is the winner of a 2015 Peabody Award. I also contribute original scoring to WNYC podcasts including Death, Sex & Money and Note to Self. Recently, I performed a live guitar score for a story by Snap Judgment's Glynn Washington.
