Here are some of the projects I'm currently working on! 


Film Score: an animation of the paintings of the Sistine Chapel

I was asked to write the music for a short video about telling the Creation Story through animating the paintings in the Sistine Chapel. The video is by Richard Laurenzi and Luke Szabados. They will be submitting this video to the Vatican Film Festival and to other museums around New York City.

UPDATE: We finished the whole project and submitted it to a few festivals. Unfortunately, I cannot share it yet, since it needs to be something that has not been published yet, and something on a website like this counts. Once we get the green light to share it, I definitely will!


Honor Me. Remember Me... Catch me!

I will be adding two more movements to my wind sextet, Catch Me!, so that it can be a more substantial piece. The first movement will be ritualistic and middle-eastern sounding, and the second movement will be reflective and reminiscent. 

UPDATE: I finished the whole piece! I need to find a group around me to perform it, so I should be able to share a recording with you within the next few months or so!


Many solo pieces for friends

I have been asked to write 2 oboe pieces, 2 bassoon pieces, and a cello piece for various friends across the country (Utah, New Jersey, Boston, Illinois, New York). 


Sci-Fi Video Game

I will working on the soundtrack to a Sci-Fi game that will be coming out within the next few years, so be on the lookout for updates!


16 Bassoons and Women's Choir

I have been commissioned by Dr. Christopher Wickham to compose a piece for BACOUSTICS and Women's Choir, that will be premiered in Spring 2018 at Rutgers University. More Details to come!
