I grew up playing classical piano and developed a love for music very early on. I have been composing music for well over 20 years now. For me, it is all about the creative process and the joy of sharing my creations with anyone who cares to listen.
In the 90's I was a writer/member of a successful local band in Utah called Agnes Poetry. As independent artists we sold nearly 20,000 discs. We performed hundreds of shows in Utah, Idaho, and New Mexico, including some large concerts where we opened for some amazing bands like Alphaville, Machines of Loving Grace, and Real Life. For many years thereafter, I was a writer for a project band named Adom9. We had just two releases, a double-disc named 'Deluge' and a Christmas EP named 'Memento Christo'.
Since 2014 I have focused almost primarily on instrumental compositions, from epic trailer pieces to subtle drama and tension pieces. I have licensed tracks for some small radio commercials and internet ads as well as two tracks for the multi-platform video game, Greg Hastings' Paintball II. I have also licensed well over 100 instrumentals to over a dozen different licensing houses in multiple countries.
I've enjoyed placements on several networks, including HBO, ABC, NBC, CBS, Discovery, Sundance Channel, Travel Channel and Velocity. Some of my show and promo placements include popular television shows, such as Mythbusters, Vice, Big Brother, The Young & the Restless, NCIS, NCIS New Orleans, NFL Football, Late Night with Stephen Colbert, and Hotel Impossible, to name a few.
