By day I'm either working behind the scenes on major Hollywood film scores, or I'm writing music heard around the world. But later I focus on educating the younger generation with exceptional music lessons. Conveniently located in Eden Prairie and nearby to Chanhassen, Minnetonka, Edina, Excelsior, Victoria, and Chaska.
I have composed music that has been heard on major networks and cable channels around the world, including Saturday Night Live, The Daily Show, NASCAR – Daytona 500, WWE, Axe Cop, Kroll Show, and The 2014 Winter Olympics. I have composed scores for various films, including Who Shot Mamba? (2009), and documentaries, including Genius On Hold (2013) and Gardeners of Eden (2014), contributed sweetening and production to numerous recording artists, including Aerosmith, Yoko Ono, The New York Dolls, David Johansen, and many others. I frequently collaborate with record producer Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Aerosmith).
I have also orchestrated films and a Golden Globe-winning television drama, Flesh and Bone, composed by Dave Porter. I have also worked behind the scenes on many major Hollywood films preparing music for films such as Joker, Smallfoot, Pete’s Dragon, Star Trek Beyond, Dr. Strange and Sully, varied Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers and video games such as Halo Wars 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront.
One of my proudest accomplishments has been my work with Aerosmith. Jack Douglas asked me to provide sweetening to their 2012 album Music from Another Dimension. My work appears on "Another Last Goodbye" and "Closer."
Also around that time I teamed up with filmmaker Casey Tebo to provide music for Aerosmith's live show. Casey and I collaborated on a track that opened up many live shows in South America. Casey also used used this track and some of my work as the first and very last pieces of music in the music video for Aerosmith's single "Legendary Child."
Here's a small selection of some of my more recent compositions.
