Listen

Below are some select pieces from my past work.  If you'd like more examples or information about my work, you need only ask
With most of my projects, I'm involved in every aspect of the production, from the initial writing to the final mastering session.

Productions

Here's some of the music I've produced and engineered. 

First, here are a couple tracks I co-wrote, produced, recorded, programmed, mixed and mastered with the pop-punk band Glass Castles.

Here's a full length folk-rock album I produced for Chicago artist Claire Corriveau.  I signed on to the project from the very beginning, and helped to co-write, produce, record, mix, master, and play most of the instruments.  I've started the player with my favorite track,  the laid back "Echoes", but the album also features blues and acoustic pop, and is available on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.

Maybe electronic music's more your style.  Here's a dance instrumental I made, using Trap beats and hip hop vibes.

Compositions

Here's some of my work for various media.

Here's a few pieces I wrote for The Artistic Home's production of William Soroyan's The Time of Your Life
The second piece is an original arrangement of The Missouri Waltz by John Valentine Eppel, processed to sound like a 1939 vinyl record.  Both pieces feature Mike Levin on Saxophone and Donald Neale on Piano.

These two pieces were part of the score for Eclipse Theatre's production of Stephen Adly Guirgis's Jesus Hopped the A-Train, which had its musical roots in East Coast hip-hop. 

I returned for another show in Eclipse's 2016 season, this time creating a nostalgic indie-rock score for their production of Stephen Adly Guirgis's Little Flower of East Orange.

Here are a couple pieces I composed for a Columbia College Chicago production of J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan
For this play, I went with a more orchestral palette to help portray the strange world of Barrie's Neverland.

Here are two pieces I composed for Youtube spots, Good Morning for a convention Montage and Sidewalk Shuffle for an Art Gallery. 

This is a song I created with Claire Corriveau for a video promoting Operation Support Our Troops America. 
This track was completed in about 24 hours, with the client saying "I'm speechless...awesome job!"
