2014 Pew Fellowship Winner!

10352208_882073571810012_3818749388758937358_nI’m honored to have been named a 2014 Pew Fellowship Recipient. The Fellowship is a $60,000 grant to be used to further the artist’s career in whatever way they choose. The folks from both the Pew Foundation and their partner, Creative Capitol, have been incredibly supportive already and I’m so grateful to have them as resources during the two-year run of the Fellowship.

Gradwell Studio Scoring

Just finished the score for the in-the-works Hendrick’s Gin project at Gradwell House Studios with producer David Downham and my partner in crime David Dunn at the helm. (aka The Double Double D Threat Down). Downham brought in some original vintage RCA mics from the 1950′s for the session and we hit the studio with Billy and Stephen Duffala (ex- MAN MAN), Jay Purdy (The Extraordinaires), and tons of toys!

The Chica Show! Promo Finished!

Get ready America! Chica from Sprout’s “Sunnyside Up Show” is not starring in her own TV show and the first promo is finally done! It premiered during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade while Chica also made her debut in float form in the parade. The show will start airing on Sprout and then migrate over to NBC Saturday morning. I got to work with an awesome crew of people on this and was really happy to get to collaborate with the super cool force that is producer/writer Marc Cantone.

THE NATIONAL for NPR’s Marketplace


The good people at Marketplace, the financial news show on NPR via American Public Media with Kai Ryssdal, teamed up with the guys in “The National” for a project for the “Wealth and Poverty Desk” segment. I directed and edited a special performance video of their song, “Bloodbuzz Ohio” with the band while they were in the studio recording their new record. (Co-Directed with my good pal David Dunn). You can check out an interview segment with senior reporter Krissy Clark with the band’s lead singer, Matt Berninger that we also shot: HERE.

Special thanks to Krissy, Martha Little, and all the guys in The National.

The Chica Show! Promo

Just finished directing the first promo for the Chica Show! It’s a brand new show and Chica the chicken’s first spin off from the Sunnyside Up Show on Sprout. Got to work with an awesome crew of people under the producing eye of the amazing Marc Cantone. Also there was a thirty person marching band and twenty-five costumed extras plus puppets. It was fun! The show will begin airing on Sprout and eventually NBC Saturday mornings after Thanksgiving.

Sailor Jerry Shoot + Flogging Molly

Glad this dude could stop Flogging Molly for a few minutes so he could come and be an arm in this Sailor Jerry commercial. I hope Molly went and found help.
