This is my music production company I founded in 2016. I have built this from the ground up as a way to develop original music for different commercial and artistic platforms and to develop my own original music driven products. I serve as the Managing Audio Director & Executive Producer along with many musical hats in order to oversee the development of new products and original tracks.

We have worked to create custom music and sound design for the release of SMART technologies NOTEbook app. This app features custom designable activities for teachers that are to be used in the classroom. The music and audio needed to be implemented in such a way that it would need to work with a variety of activities, fit the individual themes associated with each activity, and highlight the education content while still making the activity fun.
We composed loops and implementation using FMOD to design the overall effect of the audio in each installment of the theme.
I am thrilled to be the music director for the Pacific Northwest Ballets Next Step Concert Series for the last three years. This year I am responsible for writing original music for a taiko drum ensemble, a solo piano sonata, and production related work. Previously I have written three original full scale symphonic works. It has been a thrill to build these pieces from the ground up for PNB.

Obscura – World premiere, by Ballet Arkansas Resident Choreographer Kiyon Gaines, of Pacific Northwest Ballet who choreographed this new work for two women and three men to original music composed by myself and Garrett Overcash.
This is the second installment of three commissioned works Gaines will bring to Arkansas audiences and is a departure from his choreographic style as it demonstrates more spherical movement than quick-silver footwork.
World Premier weekend is April 21, 22, and 23rd. For more information and tickets please check out https://balletarkansas.org

Producer Shanna Waite commissioned me to write a piece for THE COMPOSER'S CHALLENGE as part of LAUNCH series at THE STUDIOS.
10 choreographers were provided this original score with the assignment of creating their own unique interpretation. Styles of dance included rhythm, tap, hip hop, classical ballet, and modern dance.
I was also asked to join the dancers on stage and perform live to each original piece. I co-wrote and performed this original score with composer and violinist Garrett Overcash. We used a combination of live instruments, loop pedals and Abelton Live triggers to produce the track in performance.
