I write and perform music. I like doing it; if you were wondering why, that's the reason. I do original songs & covers, sample-based music & mashups, musical theatre, scores for animation and film.
My mashups have been featured on the AV Club & other sites
I'm available to do freelance scoring and stuff, so if you're looking for that look here.

Mashups & Sample-Based
A video breakdown of the samples used in a clip from my gapless mashup album, Double Dutch Part II.
An original track composed with samples from several Motown songs and an anti-Pinochet PSA from Chile.
Double Dutch: Part II
My first gapless mashup album. 30 minutes, over 100 artists. Make in the week after I graduated college. Download it!
I arranged this in a dream and woke up to find I hadn't done it, so I did it.
Behind the Scenes of a Mashup
I compose a mashup structured around triplet rhythms with commentary.
Enya vs. Lorde.
A mashup of Christmas songs completed during one delirious all-nighter.
Little Snoop of Horrors
Snoop Dogg vs. Alan Menken.
Put It On
A light remix of a few Raymond Scott tracks.
Part of an ongiong project called the "Broken Tuner Experiment." Sade in the left ear, Annie Lennox in the right.
An absurd mashup of Imagine Dragons with the score from Dreamworks' Madagascar.
Skeet Pie Honey Bunch
The Four Tops vs. Lil' John. Part of my first mashup album, Motown Romance, which was done in 2009.
I IV ii V iii vi ii V

Jo Stafford vs. Robin Thicke. Pulled the former off an old vinyl I found on the street.
Part of a pretty weak old collection of Nickelodeon mashups. This is one of the few good ones.
Airplanes In The Middle

I Want You To Party & Bullshit
Another of the first mashups I ever did. The Jackson 5 vs. Notorious BIG. Back then, I used Audacity & had to count out the beats and do division.
Another decent one from Mixelodeon.
