In 2012 I had a brief stint on reality TV and my own web series as a result. It was a crazy twist in my story, a rollercoaster of fun and drama, and it led to unexpected inroads for music: as a result of the relationships formed at the TV network, I eventually cowrote and coproduced a song for the end of series, behind-the-scenes spot for Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. …And, in a moment of revelation, I realized how much I love taking a script or binge-watching a show and writing a song inspired by it.
My ultimate passion is taking a song from start to finish, songwriting, producing, and mixing in my home studio, and my dream is to continue to evolve creatively and professionally, writing music for shows and movies. I also have taken on clients as both mixing engineer and producer, so reach out if you feel I would be a good fit for your project.
