What he did with his music was evoke moods throughout. He emphasized certain points and underscored others. He set a tone that I can't imagine the movie without that music. It would be so blah without it.


 I look forward to working with Scott again and found him to be talented beyond measure, creative, original, versatile and very easy to work with. We had a great, consistent communication throughout the process and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a down-to-earth musician-composer who is a true artist and a good human being.

Telling Stories through Music.  

South Carolina


     I am continually in search of compelling stories to tell through television, film, podcasts or games. Technology makes it easier to collaborate. If you want music or sound design for one cue or an entire project, here is how we can collaborate.


  • Call, text or email me to discuss your ideas.

  • Send a script or time stamped MP4 file.

  • We will view and discuss the scene(s) using Skype or Whatsapp. I will import the MP4 into my DAW( LogicProX)  to view the footage and set Markers for future composing.. 

  • Once we spot the areas for music and/or sound design, I will compose music and/or SFX to match the style, mood, energy level and character emotion of the scene.

  • I will send you a wav file of the audio through WeTransfer or Dropbox for your thoughts..

  • If desired, I can import your MP4 and my wav file into my editing program;Premier Pro; and sent you a rendered copy with video and audio together for your perusal.Of course, I can share a music file without the video  to see if what I have composed has the suitable mood, tempo, instrumentation etc...

  • Once we have found the cue that furthers the story, I will mix and send you stems so that you may have the most control when you mix all the sound elements.

  • Let's chat to discuss your goals.
