FAVORITE MUSICAL: The Book of Mormon

I love writing music for movies. It's my absolutely favorite thing to do, except maybe watching movies! When the drama of a great story meets the emotion of a song or score, something magical happens, and I've had the pleasure of making that magic happen for years now on a variety of films and musicals. 


My first full-length musical "Liberators" was the only musical accepted into the 2012 Houston Fringe Festival, and my film music was noticed on a national level when ASCAP named me as one of their "Composers to Watch" for 2015. My film projects have been premiered from twice as part of the Cannes Film Festival and my first feature film Mixed Emulsions won 2nd prize in the Boomtown Film Festival. I've received tutelage from some amazing professionals in the film music industry during my time in the 2015 NYU-ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop, and I've had the amazing honor of being accepted into the 2017 class of USC's prestigious Masters in Screen Scoring program. 


Since being in LA, I've learned so much about film and the powerful way that music can help a story. Using songs to give an inner voice to the characters of a musical like Nanay Ko is a creative challenge I'm thrilled by and partnering with a passionate visionary like Mallorie is an absolute privilege.
