This is the final project at Full Sail University
This is a fun video I made showcasing a composition primarily made by recording 4 bars of music, looping it, then building on top of it.
It's amazing what can be created with a keyboard, a few sample packs, and a basic understanding of music theory.
All from with in the confines of a messy college bedroom.
This track features orchestral elements mainly strings. Using smooth voice leading I was able to utilize Kontakt session strings and create a piece that builds in emotion while maintaining a positive feel.
This track was made as a Full Sail Univ. project. The goal was to utilize instruments and styles from other cultures and blend them with modern dramatic elements. This track features Native Instruments samples.
This is a production track created for the purpose of background music to be set to an action packed film or game trailer. Featuring driving percussion, rumbling horns, and sharp strings.
This track will definitely get you pumped.
This is a production track that was written for the purpose of sitting in the background of sports highlights.
It features rock and electronic elements. I used guitar rig to track live guitar and native instruments studio drummer for the percussion element.
This ear splitting metal track was written for a project at Full Sail University. The assignment called for us to create a track that could be used as intro music for a professional wrestler. The only live elements present are guitar and bass. The rest we're using MIDI.
This track features piano, bass, and strings. It's a sweet track that really drives but is also sweet in nature.
This track features orchestral string elements as well as pop and rock elements. It features a good use of melody, counter melody, and harmonization.
This is an instrumental song featuring piano, strings, and a marimba, and a harp. I wrote this as a lullaby for my little brother Joshua who had just been born while I was on the other side of the country finishing school.
This is the music from another looping video I created. Featuring piano, bass, horns, and drums.
One night after listening to hours of jazz for my music history test I decided to write something with a little swing.
This is a electro pop track, featuring four on the floor percussion, synthesis, and rhythmic variation.
This is a song I created for Advanced Composition at Full Sail University. It features many different compositional elements such as melody, counter melody, harmony, and alternates between compound meter and simple meter. It varies in instrumentation, chordal structure, and rhythm.
This is a short film where a woman has been taken captive and is being held against her will.
My role was to compose original music as well as mix and master it.
A dramatic moment in a clip from this short film.
After hearing a disturbance the previous night, curiosity brings teens Steve, Rob, and Peter into the home of their mysterious neighbor, Mr. Mullen. All seems normal, and the boys decide to leave when Steve is pressured by his friend Rob who takes him further into the home. However, when they get to the basement, things take an unexpected turn.

A throwback type game with a sound design to match the genre.

This is a Full Sail Univ. project where I was tasked with writing music for an open world exploration video game. Basically I had to compose a different piece of music for each element you go in.
As you go through each element the music starts to blend together making one final piece comprised of 4 different layers that are unique in their own but work together with the rest of the music.
