STAR TREK: PRODIGY – Teaser

I’m the luckiest person in the galaxy (and particularly in the Delta Quadrant) that I get to work on this wonderful show. Get ready for Star Trek: Prodigy, coming to Paramount+ this fall. Check out the teaser here (or here if you’re outside the US and Canada).

Can’t wait for everyone to meet these colorful characters!! It’s been so much fun to come up with themes and motifs for them!

International Film Music Critics Association Nominations

The International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) graced me with 3(!) nominations this year, including Breakthrough Composer of the YearBest Original Score for a Comedy Film (An American Pickle, with themes by Michael Giacchino) and Best Original Score for a Video Game or Interactive Media (Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, also with themes by Michael). I’m super honoured to be included among such talented individuals!


Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond

EA’s Medal of Honor: Above and Beyond, developed by Respawn Entertainment and Oculus, and directed by Peter Hirschmann, will be released on Dec 11th, 2020. The game takes the players right into the action in World War II- you’ll play as an Allied agent of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), tasked with infiltrating, outgunning, and outsmarting the Nazi war machine.

I had the incredible honor of working with Michael Giacchino again, writing the score using his iconic themes from the original Medal for Honor, as well as new ones. The score was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and is set to be released by Lakeshore Records.
