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 am 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.

Love Bites

Trailer for New Dark Comedy Feature Released

I'm super excited to share the trailer for the new feature 'Love Bites', which 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. Mixing electronics with a jazz noire sound, I'm really pleased with how this all came together. Special shoutout to the always amazing Brian Carter for recording some of the saxophone parts for me. You can check out the trailer below.

A calming music video shot by Stephen Serio

So I'm really fortunate to have some really talented family members. My mom's cousin (so I think that makes him my second cousin) Stephen Serio is an amazing photographer. I got an email from him a few months ago saying he took this interesting video of Lake Michigan, and he set it to one of the tracks from my album. He wanted to know if it was ok for him to use it and post it, so naturally I was super flattered and said of course! It's given me some other ideas that are now floating around in my head, so stay tuned for some interesting announcements, and enjoy the video!
