Here's a bit of info about me.
(Or skip ahead to see some things I've done.)

I've composed music for over ten feature-length films, including ESPN 30 for 30 documentaries Broke, The U and The U part 2. My music has been used in commercials internationally for McDonalds, Old Navy, Microsoft, Volkswagen and Burger King, among others. In the past year my band, Bad Wave, was named The Guardian’s Band of the Week, was featured in Billboard, The Sunday Times, Metro UK and USA Today, was played on BBC Radio 1, Beats 1, and KCRW, and received over 1.5 million streams. I make lots of experimental stuff too. I have a Master’s in Composition from McGill University in Montreal, and a Bachelor’s from the University of Miami.

CLIENT HIGHLIGHTS
My music has been used by ESPN, HBO, ABC, NBC, CBS, Microsoft, Google, Old Navy, Pizza Hut, State Farm, Metlife, McDonalds, Burger King, Volvo, VW, BET, Mountain Dew, Hasbro, Ivory, Qualcomm, UFC, Grey Poupon, Donna Karan, Kraft, Dominos, Applebees and others.

The U: Part 2 ◆ ESPN (30 for 30)

I wrote, produced, and orchestrated this (I wrote about an hour of music total). I also conducted the live orchestra.

Bad Wave ◆ Runaway

Bad Wave is myself and Tucker Tota. I produce the tracks, send to Tucker, and he writes the melody and lyrics on top. We hang out all the time but we try not to work in the same room together when possible.

Grey's Anatomy ◆ ABC

I co-wrote and produced this song ("Dynamite" by Nicky Blitz) which was licensed for Grey's Anatomy.

The Leftovers ◆ HBO

I wrote and recorded this. I think it was part of the show (the pilot maybe), but you're supposed to think it's an ad? (I haven't actually seen the show)

Old Navy ◆ "The Gobble"

I wrote and produced this (ad agency wrote the lyrics). For their Thanksgiving promotions, employees nationwide had to occasionally perform this dance in-store. Here's an example.

Broke ◆ ESPN (30 for 30)

I wrote and produced all of the music for this film.

Dr. Pepper ◆ "The Avengers"

I did the sound design for this spot.

Dawg Fight

I wrote about half the music for this movie (45 minutes or so), did the fight scene creative sound design, and did all the orchestrations for the live orchestra.

Burger King ◆ "Fortune King"

I wrote and produced the music for this spot.

Lady Valor ◆ CNN

I wrote and produced about half of the score for this movie (maybe 30 minutes).

Bad Wave ◆ 3 AM

My band with Tucker Tota. I produced and cowrote this song. Check it out at 2:45 when it turns into a completely different song.

Ballers ◆ HBO

I co-wrote and produced this song ("Dynamite" by Nicky Blitz) which was licensed for Ballers. (vid coming soon)

Best Buy ◆ "Extended Returns"

I wrote and produced the music for this spot.

Eric Derr ◆ 700 Club

15 minutes of Serious Shredding. I originally wrote it as just 7-channel surround playback, but added a drumset part when Eric asked for one. He premiered it and has performed it a handful of times. Score is worth a look.

This Magic Moment ◆ ESPN (30 for 30)

I wrote/produced/orchestrated this. Samples, not a real orchestra. I think they mostly used library tracks for this movie, but they asked me to score around 15-20 minutes. (vid coming soon)

Tyga ◆ Rack City intro

I wrote the intro music for this video. Didn't work on the track. Rack city bitch

Old Navy ◆ "Jeanvestment"

I wrote and produced the music for this spot.

McDonalds ◆ "Raju"

I wrote and produced the music for this spot.

The Golden Peppers ◆ Sometimes (One Night)

A solo project I did in 2015. I wrote/produced/played everything except horns and girl vocals. Video by Tucker Tota.

Bad Wave ◆ Lookout

My band with Tucker Tota. I produced and cowrote this track. We actually beat the crap out of those kids.

Wish Upon

They licensed a song I cowrote ("Die Young" by Brett). (vid coming soon)

Ohio Lottery ◆ "Thrill Ride"

I created the sound design for this spot. Many cute robot noises.

See You In Valhalla

I scored about 20 minutes of music for this movie.

Old Navy ◆ "Bee Bots"

I wrote and produced the music for this spot.

Orchestration & Composition

Here are a few examples of live-orchestra/large ensemble compositions and orchestrations.

Sound Design

A sampling of trailer SFX. Boom! Pow!

A few songs I wrote and produced. (Co-wrote Bad Wave/Brett, wrote Golden Peppers, produced Bad Wave/Golden Peppers)
