My job is to tell stories with sound. 

I compose music for visual media such as films, commercials, and virtual reality experiences. I also write songs and produce albums. I enjoy helping others bring their musical ideas into the world as much as I do writing on my own. I have a strong background in audio engineering and much of my work is about integrating those skills with my musical identity.

My work has won awards from: London International, Sound on Sound Magazine, Association of Music Producers (AMP), Ciclope, Clio, One Show Interactive, Sundance, La Guarimba Film Festival, Chitose Airport International Animation Festival and 4As Partner. 

My productions have been featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds and dozens of music publications such as Indie Shuffle, WNYC, The Guardian, Wonderland, Crack In The Road, etc.

My work for advertising has appeared on content produced for Facebook, Google, Nike, The United Nations, National Geographic, Childline, Goodwill, KLM, Philips, Scotch & Soda, and many others. I have also contributed binaural recording and sound design for Virtual Reality projects commissioned by Mountain Dew and Patron.
