  After a successful first run on the SYFY network here in the United States, my latest series SUPERSTITION is now on NETFLIX in over 180 countries worldwide! The series centers on the Hastings family, owners of the only funeral home in the mysterious town of La Rochelle, Georgia. The family also acts as the keepers of the town’s dark secrets and history. Known for its haunted houses, elevated graveyards, odd townsfolk and rich history of unusual phenomena, the town is also a “landing patch” for the world’s darkest manifestations of fear, guided into the world by an ancient, mysterious malefactor. Starring Mario Van Peebles, Brad James, Robinne Lee, W Earl Brown, Demetria McKenny    


Proud to announce that I recently scored RIDESHARE, an anthology episode for the greater series DARK/WEB.   RIDESHARE was written & directed by Boman Modine, my good friend and talented director whom I’ve worked with before.   The thriller anthology series is the work of visionary producers Michael Nardelli, Mario Miscione, and Tim Nardelli at Felt Films.   The episode is an intensely scary and unsettling look into the future of technology run amok.   I look forward to sharing more about the story and characters when we get closer to air dates……  

Pilot Season Prep

I’ve been deep in prep for pilot season 2016! Working on a number of projects, which will be discussed in depth in the near future. Right now I’ve been composing concept pieces for two television pilots this spring, working with the show creators and producers to start defining possible sonic identities for these shows.  A lot of fun collaborating with writers to find the sound that helps tell their story. Currently working on some World War Two material, as well as some adventure oriented music.  More to come soon….
