Artist on the Rise
A nice write up in Artist on the Rise About my New Album

A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to do an interview with Artist on the Rise, where I talked about my new album, Silhouettes of Life. It's not often that I get to do interviews like this, so it was really special to get that opportunity. The article talks about the musical journey that was this album, and life over the past two years. It was wonderfully written, and I hope you'll check it out and join me on the journey!

The Weight of Gold
A New HBO Documentary

I'm really excited and proud to have been a part of the music team for the amazing documentary 'The Weight of Gold'. It tells the story of Olympic athletes and the struggles they face during and post career. Their bouts with depression, their struggle with the pressure and addiction, and for a few, eventual suicide. It's an incredible story and I'm so glad I got to be a part of it. You can watch it now streaming on HBO on demand and the HBO family of apps

I'm super excited to share the trailer for the new feature 'Love Bites' whcih I had the pleasure of scoring. director Andrew Rothkin is incredibly talented and an all around good guy, and he let me take this score in a really unique direction.
