I’m an Austin-based musician, photographer, filmmaker, and small business owner. My career began as a performer and recording artist, culminating with the 1998 Columbia Records release greenelectric. I went on to earn some platinum records as a writer/producer, before my journey as a composer for TV and commercials opened my eyes to a much broader artistic field to cultivate.

After moving from Los Angeles to Austin in 2005, I forged a creative partnership with filmmaker Matt Naylor while working together on a series of Clinton Global Initiative short films. In the decade since, we’ve built a Clio-winning multimedia content studio, delivering over $30MM in carefully curated brand-commissioned projects designed to promote social good.

While building the company I’ve developed other areas of expertise and interest, but stay grounded in music as a composer on Flow’s Hulu series Main Street: Small Business Revolution and as a creator of our video series Clubhouse: Music up Close, where we film intimate 5-song concerts with touring artists in our Travis Heights blackbox studio. We’ve hosted Suzanne Vega, Arkells, Lights, Band of Skulls, Larkin Poe, Frank Turner, flor, and lots of other acts in all stages of their careers.

I stepped into artist management briefly in 2018, helping Americana artist Chelsea Williams land a video premiere and 12-week rotation on CMT, and creating successful cross-promotions with Crosley, Martin Guitars, Third Man Records, and Airstream.

Having established a strong base with our work at Flow, I’m focused now on creating smart, slow-build partnerships with like-minded people across a wide range of industries.
