Although I have been composing most of my life, I only recently decided I wanted to explore film music as another facet of my music career. If you are a filmmaker visiting this site, feel free to check out some of the samples I have here. One of my songs was  used in an Ecuadorian film called Espejos.

I have a degree in music from North Dakota State University. While there, I paid special attention to 20th century harmonic techniques and learned to use them to find new ways to create familiar atmospheres.

While writing in a style similar to Legend's Ghost's music is what would come most naturally to me, I can also experiment with other styles, depending on the needs of the filmmaker. I can most easily see my music in a thriller or fantasy movie, maybe something Edgar Allen Poe-related. But like I said, I am willing to experiment and I like a challenge.

Fees are negotiable, depending on the nature of the project and complexity of the music needed, if I need to record live musicians, etc. But generally speaking, I charge $40-50 per minute of music.

My musical demo reel.

The Portal.mp3

 From my 2014 album Gatekeepers, this is mainly a classical piece with a few synths thrown in here and there.

Love and the Riddle.mp3

 This is the love theme from my upcoming album The Suicidal Immortal.

Trouble end credits theme.mp3

 I did this as part of an experiment and liked how it turned out. Since the film I did it for was never released to my knowledge, this is not fully edited. But it does give a sense of how I use harmony and melody.
