Hello! I’m a contemporary composer based in Boston writing primarily for film, as well as dance and other collaborative arts. I love both film and music very much and I'm passionate about using music to help tell stories - my mouth waters thinking about it as I write this :)

Films I’ve scored include The Rabbi Goes West (currently on a festival run that’s included screenings at DocNYC,  The Vancouver International Film Festival and a premiere at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival), and “Weather and Chaos: The Work of Edward N. Lorenz,” the first film about Lorenz produced with the participation of scientists who worked alongside him. (I generated elements of this score using chaos math and the visualizations in the film – read more about it here.)

I’ve also contributed and/or orchestrated music for over fifteen PBS productions and independent films. These include Edgar Allan Poe: Buried Alive, Henry Ford, “War of the Worlds,” The Wall: A World Divided and Our Mockingbird.

Other films I’ve scored include The Way Home: Tibet in Exile, a feature about three generations of women in a Tibetan family confronting the changes and future of their culture, Touchdown Israel!, about the Israeli American-rules football league, the horror/thriller/dark comedy, Aim, Point, Shoot, and the award-winning short-film “Morocco to Israel”, about a family of Berber Jews who emigrated to Israel in the 1950’s.

Aside from film, I’ve written for theater (Punctuate4‘s 2019 production of “No Victors, No Vanquished,”) and collaborated with the Urbanity Dance Company (Best of Boston, 2015, 2017), creating music for performance pieces, participating in ‘test kitchen’ classes and speaking to students in their choreography workshops.

I’ve also created music and/or sound design for video game companies Earplay, Inc. and Lantana Games (Videri String Quartet Plays Children of Liberty), and composed music for commercials for Nationwide Insurance and the Independent Film Festival of Boston.

After graduating from Berklee College of Music in film scoring and piano, I cut my teeth for over ten years as an assistant to veteran, award-winning composer John Kusiak. I’ve studied classical composition at Longy School of Music and have a BS in Physics with a minor in Astronomy from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

This is my third Getting Real! I'm looking forward to reconnecting and/or connecting with all of you!
