Below you'll find a handful of instrumental pieces I've written recently. These were devised as score pieces for ersatz TV shows / movies. Some work as themes, some have more of a narrative shape following a scene that only lives in the imagination. Not sure if anybody would be interested in watching these so-called shows, but hopefully the music will move you. Should you be moved to enlist my services as a composer for your project, you may contact me.

I'm a musician in general but more specifically I play guitar, write songs and sing those songs. I also compose instrumental pieces and I occasionally produce recordings, mix recordings and do some arranging.

Of late I've had a few placement with my band El Cento, most notably in the FOX sitcom "Grandfathered." I provided some theme music for an Austin-based comedy show ATX Uncensored(ish).I'm currently performing with...
Starting in Summer 2015 I'll be teaching Applied Guitar (private lessons, basically) at Austin Community College. I'd love to talk to you about getting to know the neck better, writing good parts, playing in bands, using effects. Anything really.
