2017 saw the premiere of my second film score: Toymaker, an animated short created by a team of Brown University students led by Nellie Robinson and Prof. Barbara Meier.

Toymaker went on to win the music award in the student film category at the Athens Animfest 2018.

You can read about the production in the Brown Computer Science Department's journal Conduit.

I have a phone, but I never pick up unless it's someone I know, so there is no use listing my number here. I used to have a Facebook account, but it just made things complicated so I deleted it. Email is the surest way of getting hold of me.

I maintain an email list for announcements and reminders about my upcoming performances, so if you'd like to join my legions of followers, let me know. Or else you can just repeatedly visit this site and hope that I keep it updated.
