Since 2000, I have been composing and performing music in and around Pittsburgh in a variety of styles and bands. I've done everything from noise/ambient to traditional folk, to dance electronica. I play a wide variety of instruments, and am well versed in music theory. In 2009, I decided my ecclectic tastes and skills would serve me well in the world of film music.
I completed my first feature length score in 2011, which also included two electro-industrial vocal songs. I have participated in the 48 Hour Film Project for the past 3 years, and do music, sound design and live sound for a haunted house.
I can work within most budgets, so please contact me if you are interested in music for your film. I would be happy to send you clips from previous work, a cd of my music or demo a scene for you.
I also have an electronic/traditional (mostly Celtic) project called Ghost Estate. You can hear that at http://www.reverbnation.com/ghostestate or http://soundcloud.com/ghost-estate It's definitely a niche-genre sort of thing, but if you'd like to use one of our songs as incidental music in a film, drop me a line!
