Resumé

There's a lot here - I've been doing this for a while. But here are some shortcuts to the good stuff:

songs for film, TV and streaming media

comedy songs written with whitney avalon

Unless otherwise noted below, I composed, produced, orchestrated and (on a few) co-wrote lyrics to these ones:

songs for disney films

With Valerie Vigoda, wrote “We’ll Be There” for the opening sequence, and “The Great Divide” for a crucial story sequence in the middle of the film, as well as the end credits.

TINKER BELL & THE PIXIE HOLLOW GAMES (2011)

With Valerie Vigoda, wrote “Dig Down Deeper” for this TV special. It was sung by Disney TV teen star, Zendaya, who went on to perform it on the build-a-bear float at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Like you do.

TINKER BELL & THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE (2010)

With Valerie Vigoda, wrote the opening title sequence song, “Summer’s Just Begun,” as well as the lyrics for the closing credits song, “Come Flying With Me.”

TINKER BELL & THE LOST TREASURE (2009)

Ableton Live as a Live Looping tool

I have designed live looping rigs for electric violinists following the success of my long-time partner and collaborator, Val Vigoda. Depending on the client, I have done any and all of the following:

  • writing looping arrangements
  • program midi foot pedals (especially the FAMC Music Liquid Foot)
  • program Ableton Live
  • set up effect switching systems
  • prepare timed midi signals to trigger projections
  • hand-holding through the craziness and delight of a complicated midi looping rig

Clients:

  • Val Vigoda (arranging, producing, co-writing, system design, programming)
  • Savannah Jo Lack (programming, system design, troubleshooting)
  • Eliza Jane Schneider
  • Janice Martin

keyboard, vocal, and occasionally guitar and bass and ukelele instruction

The West Seattle School of Rock (October 2017-present)

software proficiency

  • Logic Pro, ProTools, Ableton Live;
  • Final Cut Pro X, Apple Motion, Adobe Premiere;

I'm a dyed-in-the-wool geek, I pick stuff up pretty quick.
