Marvel Entertainment Composer & Sound Designer
In March 2018 I was hired to do some voice-over work for Marvel Entertainment, portraying the mighty Galactus. Lo and behold, and I’m now 30 music compositions deep for their creative universe. Aside from being incredibly honored, I’m actually mostly grateful for the opportunity to get my brain working in ways I never imagined before. Scoring comic book characters is just as challenging as it sounds. With each character comes a different style and vibe that really gets your musical toolbox opened up. I’ve composed everything from classical, jazz, electronic, into the realms of metal, rock, and your expected epic superhero music. Regardless of the character, this required removing all boundaries and limitations, just as the Marvel Universe has done since 1941.
Former Music Industry Creative & Marketing Director
My first love for photography began when I was a pre-teenager attending the Santa Fe New Mexico Boys & Girls Club. My mother worked there as the educational director, and I used this to a slight advantage: I fibbed my way into the Photography Club by saying I was a teenager (the requirement for the club) when I was in fact 10 years old. There I learned how to develop photographs and use SLR cameras. When my age was revealed to be too young for the club, the Photography Club director, Leslie, allowed me to stay based on my desire to learn.
As a graphic designer, I first began doing artwork for my band - out of necessity - in 2004. It then transpired into doing artwork for local bands in the area, and then eventually all over the world. The artwork would be used for album covers, merch designs, website designs, logos, etc.
Binary Code Founding Band Member, established 2004
I formed Binary Code in 2004 - which I presently pursue. I have been the primary composer for the band throughout their duration - having also engineered some of Binary Code's releases. I’ve engineered and produced releases from local and tri-state area bands - as well as performed guest guitar solos for several projects. I has toured internationally over the past decade with Binary Code on tours with Norwegian prog band Leprous, USA's Revocation, France's Hypno5e, USA's Rivers of Nihil - as well as separately as a crew member for Germany's The Ocean Collective on the 2013 Summer Slaughter Tour featuring Dillinger Escape Plan, Periphery, Animals As Leaders, Norma Jean, and more.
As a 16 year Musical Instrument Industry veteran, I have learned everything from how instruments perform and work, their composition, their tonal characteristics, how they are marketed and sold, as well as growing a network with hundreds of musical instrument industry companies. I have worked with the two leading big-box musical instrument retailers (Sam Ash, Guitar Center), as well as electro-mechanical piano manufacturer and repair/supplier Vintage Vibe. I also endorse ToonTrack products and use them almost exclusively on ALL compositions I do, Polish boutique guitar & bass monolith Mayones Guitars, space-age technology guitar wizards Aristides Instruments from the Netherlands, Bare Knuckle Pickups from the United Kingdom, Gravity Guitar Picks (Sweden), Hipshot Products of the USA, Joey Sturgis’ JST VST Plugins, and VST tools from Develop Device
