I make music (and sometimes consume it). I compose experimental film scores and three-minute pop tunes. I live in Sunnyside, New York, with the city’s most beautiful woman. I believe the detritus of our days – the shards, debris, and miscellany of our existence – contain much of the meaning of our lives. And I challenge anyone to find me a finer dessert than a Shake Shack concrete.
