New Composition Demo

I'm happy to share a demo of some of the music I have written for the renowned slot machine company High 5 Games over the last several years. One of the best things about this company is their creation of strong characters and environments for their games. This makes it especially fun to create stylistically strong music and sound design. Enjoy!

Other Things I've Seen in the Night

Slumpy Moonbeams are not the only things that bother me in the night. Some would say I have a problem with sleepwalking, or rather "sleep events." One of the cool things about being married is now I have someone to report back to me what happens in the night. Unfortunately for Emily, my sleep events usually happen early in the night just as she is finally falling asleep. I fall asleep instantly while it takes her a long time. Just as she is drifting away is when I might start swinging at the air, climb across the bed, or try to save her from a giant spider. I fall back to sleep right away but she has to stop panting from my startle and start all over.
