Medical Police

“Medical Police” is now streaming on Netflix!!  When I heard that the team from “Childrens Hospital” was doing a spin-off / sequel that threw the characters of Lola (Erinn Hayes) and Owen (Rob Huebel) into an International Thriller genre, I was extremely excited to return to this world, and by the prospects of what that could mean for score and storytelling.

Watch all 10 episodes of the first season of Medical Police on Netflix


State of Pride

I had the immense honor of co-scoring the new documentary “State of Pride” with my dear friend Allyson Newman.  Directed by Oscar-winning filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, the film looks at what Pride means to people today, 50 years after the Stonewall Riots.

“State of Pride” is now streaming on YouTube, the first of three documentaries being made available to watch without a subscription for Pride Month.

Dear You

On average 115 Americans die from opioid overdoses every day. I had the privilege of scoring this short film which highlights the opioid epidemic’s devastating effect on America’s youth.  Directed by Kathryn Prescott, “Dear You” portrays the human story of isolation and loneliness caused by addiction that is so rarely seen.

The Akron Holy War

Continuing my collaboration with Anthony Fanelli (Spare Change, Chapters of Horror), The Akron Holy War tells the story of one of the most unique sports rivalries in the country.  Two high schools in Akron, Ohio have enrolled students from the same neighborhoods, streets and families for over 60 years and the annual football game draws a crowd to rival many professional teams.

The Akron Holy War is now available on Amazon Video!

And check out the soundtrack on iTunes or Apple Music!
