Surreal Hollywood Moments: My score for Miss Arizona and my score for Passage were both nominated for Hollywood Music in Media Awards. Miss Arizona in the US Indie Feature Category, Passage in the US Shorts Category. You may recognize some big names on that list…
Very excited to announce that the feature film I scored, produced by James Franco, John Watson, Jenna Cavelle and David Breschel will premiere in Los Angeles on November 3rd, 2018. More details to soon!
The movie is a Tom-boy Sawyer adaptation of the classic novel. With Angelina Capozzoli and Marianna Palka.

This Day Forward’s score is nominated for Best Original Score- Independent Feature at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. Boom! Kinda surreal to see my name on the list alongside these masters of film scoring…
This meaningful, thought-provoking film was directed by the very gifted Brian Ide , and I’m very proud of our second collaboration!
And thank you Mike and Jennifer Jensen, for sharing this personal story. May the movie bring faith and hope to the ones who watch it.
I’m super pumped to share the news – My score for Luminarias won Best Score for a Short Film at Fimucite, the Tenerife International Film Music Festival. Out of 908 short films that were submitted, 20 were shortlisted as finalists, and my film won. I couldn’t be more thrilled about it. Listen to Luminarias’ score here:
Thanks again to animator Catherine Choolijian who brought me on board to score her wonderful movie! And thank you- amazing musicians who made the score sound good: Catherine Baker, Chloe Chiu, Karen Chooljian, @Ben Crofut, Kelsi Doolittle, Alex Rosales García, Coco Ya-nan Hu, Annie Jacobs-Perkins, Marina Lenau, Margeaux Maloney, Karoline Menezes Smith, Zach Pulse, Carrie Rexroat, Tim Richardson, Evgeny Tonkha, Daphne Violin Tsao, @Zun-Hin Woo, Jennifer Wu, and Dan Blanck.
Over the summer, I scored The Big Nothing, the coolest Sci-Fi Comedy TV Series for Yes-Kidz Channel. This concludes my fourth collaboration with writer-director Nir Berger, whom I can only describe as a ROCK STAR and I can’t wait for our next project together. He is A List material. The story of the series: it’s the first intergalactic reality show, taking place in a giant butt-shaped space station. The contestants are aliens, portrayed by puppets, and humans. It’s dark, fast-paced and utterly crazy. If you’re in Israel, catch the 12 episodes of The Big Nothing- airing now on Yes-Kidz and on YES-VOD in-demand.

And the end credits:
Performed by the Hollywood Chamber Orchestra lead by Mark Robertson, New Zealand’s Guide To Tessering is inspired by A Wrinkle In Time and my adventures when traveling in New Zealand, the piece celebrates the energy of nature, love & hope. As described in the novel by Madeleine L’Engle, Tessering is a form of traveling in the fifth dimension. The colorful musical journey reflects this experience, which transcends temporal and earthly boundaries.
“Stories make us more alive, more human, more courageous, more loving.” – Madeleine L’Engle
