Oregon Connection: In 2017, my wife and I moved across the country from Virginia to start a new chapter of our lives. Since I've been here my work as a film composer has allowed me to collaborate with a number of ensembles: string quartets, horn ensembles, jazz players. I'm committed to working with Portland musicians at Portland studios, even though the films are largely produced elsewhere.
Recently, I've been preparing to release an EP of music that was written here in Oregon in the first home my wife and I owned, on the first upright piano I've owned.
