“My life is music, and in some vague, mysterious and subconscious way, I have always been driven by a taut inner spring which has propelled me to almost compulsively reach for perfection in music, often - in fact, mostly - at the expense of everything else in my life.” Stan Getz


“The Highway” - A film by Susan Davis, is making the rounds in the film fest circuit and getting tons of positive reception.

Susan Davis contacted me back in March 2016 about scoring her new film.

It’s a short (20 min) film that needed a very narrative score. Thats pretty

much why I came to California, so I gladly accepted the challenge. I finished

scoring in time for the film to be mixed and released on time to enter the film

fest season... Its getting some great responses too. In fact, the film was

accepted to the “LA Shorts Awards” and received a Best Original Score

award! Yay! Its always great to see your children (my music) doing well. Congrats to Susan

and the whole cast & crew on a job well done.
