If Christmas was a movie, then Christmas Cheer would be the soundtrack. Eight Christmas classics completely remade into a modern cinematic production that rivals the best movie soundtracks. Also included is an original song titled Cheer, the album's namesake and something the world can always use more of. This album is full of all the emotions that make Christmas special to each of us; hope, love and fond memories of the season.

PonyTime Advance:

Dance EP released 2014


Tracklist: Sweetie Bot Breakdown - Electro House track, "Yay! (PonyTime Rework)" - Originally written by Nicolas Dominique, "Freedom of Pony" - Electro House track, "Breakthrough" - Dance track.

Unofficial Opening & Main Theme for No Man's Sky.


Inspired as I was by the E3 reveal of the game, I decided to write music as if I were the actual composer, based off of the beautiful screenshots and masterful concept art of the game. I'm quite pleased with the lush hybrid orchestral end result.

Booker DeWitt - Tribute to Bioshock Infinite


A small and intimate fan piece in the style of Bioshock's official soundtrack. Seeing as how the main character didn't have a theme, I made one that I felt was a appropriate: haunting, steeped in sadness, looking for redemption, and featuring two very close cellos.

PonyTime Initate:

Electronic EP released 2013


Tracklist: The Terrible Two (PonyTime Remix) - Originally written by Seventh Element, Equine Nocturne - Piano Concerto-type orchestral track, Not Enough Pony - Dance track, Remember Me - Dance Track.

Baldur's Gate


Main Theme


I've always loved the Baldur's Gate games, especially the music in them. Ever since I found the demo for the original Baldur's Gate on a PC Gamer disc many years ago, I played it over and over again. When I started creating orchestral and thematic music I wanted to recreate what it would sound like using today's instruments, sound design, and sound quality.
