I like to create unique and original music of just about every genre for use in films and games and I enjoy the occassional remix contest as well.
My album, Universe87 Campaign Setting Soundtrack, was nominated for an Origins Award as Best Game Accessory in 2005 and was nominated for a JPF Music Award as Best Techno Album of the Year in 2009; I came in fourth place.
My song, "Nature of God," from Universe87 Campaign Setting Soundtrack was nominated for a JPF Music Award for Best Techno Song in 2009.
I play a villager-turned-zombie in the full-length horror film The Dead Matter (2009) by Edward Douglas of Midnight Syndicate. Check it out!
In addition to composing and producing, I am ab avid tabletop gamer. On May 11, 2011 I released Kaiju Kaos - The Miniatures Game. This is my first effort at creating my own intellectual property. Check out www.kaijukaos.com for details.
Stratos was born out of a need for original dance and atmospheric music for an independent film by Steward Entertainment & Wonderboy Productions called The Screen (released December 8, 2000).
Over the past 12+ years, I have recorded 100s of original songs for various projects.
