You Need Music?

I'm always looking for new and exciting music-related projects. Whether you want someone to perform at your convention or event, provide tunes for your movie, compose and arrange a fresh soundtrack for your game, or whatever musical mayhem you can come up with, contact me and give me an idea of the scope of your needs. We'll work out a plan from there! In the meantime, here's a sampling of some of the things I've been involved with over the past several years.
