About Me

I am a composer working primarily in visual media. Projects I’ve composed for include the films Touchdown Israel!, which has played at over 15 film festivals including the Sarasota Film Festival and the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival (the “Sundance of jewish film festivals”), the neo-noir thriller Aim, Point, Shoot, the video game Children of Liberty and the award-winning short film “Morocco to Israel.” I have also scored commercials for Nationwide Insurance and the Independent Film Festival of Boston, and contributed music to various productions for PBS, including several episodes of American Experience. For a full list of his credits, look here.

Since 2008 I’ve had the good fortune to work as an orchestrator and assistant to veteran award-winning composer John Kusiak, where I’ve had the opportunity to learn and work on a variety of independent films, documentaries, television commercials and museum pieces.

I am a graduate in film scoring and jazz piano from Berklee College of Music, and have studied classical composition at Longy School of Music and through private study. I also have my BS in Physics from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

“When scoring a film, game or any kind of collaborative project I see myself as a key member of the creative team, trying to understand the director/designer’s vision, and, using my sensibilities, experience and personal style, find the best possible way I can contribute to telling the story.”
