I’ve been working with a new small developer, Coronado Games, on their latest project entitled “Starship Corporation” as a sound designer and composer. The project was crowd funded through indie gogo and raised over $25,000 dollars based on the concept and a very early build of the game.
Starship Corporation is a Realtime Strategy Game that contains 4 Elements:
- Ship Design
- Crew and AI Tactics
- Ship Building
- and Trade
The player is able to create the layout for Spaceships and Planetary Installations with multiple decks within the boundaries of existing fuselages. He can choose between (currently) 50 Room types in 6 categories .
A completed Design can then be challenged by playing a series of missions to test the crews reaction to emergencies and the ships combat capabilities. The success of these missions determines the ships rating, important for a good price on the market or the ships performance in your own fleet.

“Madden ’13 WiiU”
I’ve spent the past eight months working as an embedded quality assurance tester for Madden ’13 on the brand new Nintendo WiiU. I helped test all the new gamepad features that were implemented for the new console. This version was missing quite a few features compared to it’s Gen3 counterparts, but the overall reception for the project as been positive.
Article about first impressions from Kotaku:
Recently finished a new EP for my electronic music project “Cowardly Lion”
Have a listen! Artwork by my good friend Stephen Olesky. steveolesky.com
Recently finished all the audio for the indie game, “Dinocalypse.” It is a tower defense game where you fight off waves of dinosaurs that are trying to destroy your base. I was fortunate to be involved in every audio aspect in this game. I was also able to compose an original score for the project that was in the vein of the Donkey Kong Country Soundtrack. This game was presented quite a few technical challenges, but it was very rewarding to see the final product.
Here is a gameplay video.
Finished up audio this month for a Full Sail Game Development project, “Noxious”
The game turned out really well. I was fortunate enough to compose all original music for the project, as well as help with some sound design and audio functionality. Below is a video of gameplay as well as a link to download the game if you were interested in playing. (PC only)
Collaborating and contributing music on a new horror film titled “The Summoning”
The full-length feature film is having it’s audio post-production done by Akahon Audio in Orlando, FL. The owner and operator of Akahon, Rob Reider, has given me an opportunity to help score the film. More on this in the coming weeks. Here is a link to the film’s IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1880379/

A Cowardly Lion
“A Cowardly Lion” was a music project I started back in 2006 and even released an EP in 2007. I have recently been working on the project again and am looking to put out a full-length sometime this year. Here is a widget playlist of my old recordings. Kind of a different sound, a little too ambitious for my ability at the time, but still found quite a following.
New 35mm student film I have composed a few songs for. Takes place in the 1980s and the music reflects that.
His Name is Gulliver Stevens
Project in the works that I created a few original tracks for. The request was that I do my best Hans Zimmer impression.
Gills are Collapsing
A few tracks I created for an upcoming student film, “Snakeskin”
Not sure if all of these tracks will make the final edit, depends on what works best with the final mix.
New Trailer for Snakeskin has been posted. Definitely a throwback to old horror films. I wish I could have composed to picture but I wrote the four or five themes
just by reading the script, so it will be interesting to see how they worked my music into the film. Either way, I’m excited!
Check it out!
Inception Fish Update
So I composed a quick song for the more ambient parts of Inception Fish. The director Chris has gone into seclusion so I’m not sure what is happening with the project right now, but knowing him it will be awesome and hilarious. This isn’t the best mix but I was working under some time constraints so I think it sounds good for only putting an hour or so into it. Enjoy!
