I am a contemporary composer working primarily in visual media. I have contributed music and/or orchestrations to over 15 productions for PBS including features and episodes of American Experience. Films I’ve scored include the feature documentary Touchdown Israel!, which has played at over 15 film festivals including the Sarasota Film Festival and the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (the “Sundance of jewish film festivals”), The Way Home: Tibet in Exile, about three generations of Tibetan women confronting the future of their culture, the neo-noir thriller Aim, Point, Shoot, and the award-winning short film “Morocco to Israel,” about a family of Berber Jews’ migration to Israel in the 1950s. I’ve also scored commercials for Nationwide Insurance and the Independent Film Festival of Boston, as well as served as audio director, composer, sound designer and audio programmer for the video game Children of Liberty. You can see a full list of my credits here.
Since 2008 I’ve had the good fortune to work as an orchestrator and assistant to veteran award-winning composer John Kusiak, where I’ve had the opportunity to work on a variety of independent films, documentaries, television commercials and museum pieces.
I am a graduate in film scoring and jazz piano from Berklee College of Music (Magna Cum Laude), and have studied classical composition at Longy School of Music and through private study. I also have my BS in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
“When scoring a film, game or any kind of collaborative project I see myself as a key member of the creative team, trying to understand the director/designer’s vision, and, using my sensibilities, experience and personal style, find the best possible way I can contribute to telling the story.”
