I'm a professional songwriter and performer with years of experience. I've toured internationally as a bassist and singer, I produce and perform my own music as a solo artist, and I score music for feature films, TV, and commercials!
I studied classical and jazz upright bass at USC where I earned my Master's degree in 2007. I was also involved with intensive study of singing and arranging, and performed in pop music ensembles on electric bass. Over time, using the foundations I built in music theory, composition, and performance, I developed a method for songwriting that flows from the core of who I am and what I'm trying to say as an artist - I can help you do the same.
Some of my career highlights (so far):
• I'm an ASCAP Award-Winning Songwriter
• I'm signed as an artist to an established indie label
• I have scores of placements in TV, Film, and Commercials
• International touring in support of the B-52s
• National touring with bands in a wide variety of genres
I'm fluent in almost any songwriting format - I'm an expert-level Logic and Pro Tools user, but I'm just as comfortable writing on guitar and piano. I love Pop music, Indie Rock, Film Scoring, and so many other genres. If you're looking for a creative breakthrough, I can help - feel free to reach out anytime, I'm looking forward to meeting you!
I partially scored the Sylvester Stallone film 'Escape Plan: The Extractors'
I worked as a copyist preparing sheet music for blockbuster scoring sessions. I was part of the team for Benjamin Button, The Princess and the Frog, The Spirit, Marley and Me, and many many others!
