Star Wars: Battlefront II

I'm incredibly lucky to be friends with the amazing composer, Gordy Haab. He was my "mentor" through the Henry Mancini Institute when I first moved to Los Angeles in 2006. We've been good friends ever since, and I've helped him out on multiple projects throughout the years. The most exciting gigs always come back to Star Wars. Gordy composed all the music for Star Wars Battlefront, and now the sequel. Thankfully, he trusted me to write some additional music on both games. It has been one of my great joys in life to hear the London Symphony Orchestra play a cue I wrote, in the exact same setup as the original trilogy.

Katharine McPhee - I Fall In Love Too Easily

I had a lot of fun on this project. Out of the blue, I got an email from producer, Don Was, to see if I was available to write string and horn arrangements for Katharine's upcoming jazz standards album. After a quick meeting at the top of the Capitol Records building discussing the intricasies of 3-horn voicings, I listened to the rough mix of the album and decided what tunes to add arrangements to. Don was fantastic to work with, and allowed me to bring in my BLO associates for the horn session. Thanks to Alex Budman, Mike Stever, and Francisco Torres for doing great work as always. We had the A Team at Capitol with Al Schmitt and Steve Genewick recording and mixing the record.

Godless

A few years ago I was introduced to composer Carlos Rafael Rivera on a movie score he wrote called "A Walk Amongst the Tombstones." Carlos was a friend of my frequent collaborator, Tim Davies, but it also turns out that he now teaches at my alma mater, Univ. of Miami. When his next project came around, I ended up leading the orchestration team. Thanks to Jordan Seigel, Bobby Brader, Sarah Lutz, and Lorenzo Carrano for helping me get through this project. Raising an infant daughter and orchestrating a 6 part mini-series isn't easy, but they made it possible.

LEGO Ninjago

Earlier this summer, I orchestrated the LEGO Ninjago movie along with lead orchestrator Tim Davies. The score was by Mark Mothersbaugh, of Devo fame. This one was a lot of fun!

Quick trip across the pond

I had a short, but jam packed trip to London a couple months ago to record some great music for two different composers. Plus, I finally got to go to Abbey Road! First impressions, it was a lot bigger than I thought. It's quite the recording complex.

Ready Player One

Very excited to find out that this trailer was used in "Ready Player One." I orchestrated it for composer Veigar Margeirsson, of Pitch Hammer music. Veigar was one of the first people I reached out to when I moved to Los Angeles 11 years ago, so it's always great getting to work with him again.

National Symphony Orchestra

It's been a great year for arranging work. So far, I've had the pleasure to write charts for two great concerts with the National Symphony Orchestra. It is always a fun time teaming up with Tim Davies on these projects. Looking forward to next year's gig!

From There to Here - Score Reductions

My friend Tim Davies has been making excellent YouTube videos, where he makes a score reduction, ala "Inside the Score." It's such a great idea, I thought I would make some of my own. Here are two tracks off of my big band's debut album, "From There to Here." Hope you enjoy an inside look at how this music is put together.
