synthwave / chiptune / soundtracks / video game music / hip hop / sound effects

Based in Los Angeles, I collaborate and work with artists and clients globally. Email me through Bandcamp, send me a message on Facebook or tweet to me. You can also find me on Music Gateway and Twine. Are you a vocalist in need of a producer? I'm a Certified Pro on Vocalizr.

I got my start on the European demoscene in the late 80s as the composer for world-famous and humble Atari ST demo crew SYNC, placing first in several demo music contests. Since attending Musicians Institute in the early 90s, I've composed and produced video game inspired synth and chip soundtracks for a number of projects and records such as legendary geek rapper YTCracker's cyberpunk album Introducing Neals. Credited on eight LPs, I've been featured on albums alongside artists like Mitch Murder, Lazerhawk and GUNSHIP. I've appeared live at events and venues such as Game On Expo and The Grid alongside acts like The Gothsicles, The Minibosses and Future Holotape. I also write themes for video games such as Power Drive 2000.

"The production here really shines and is full of enough pulsing and shimmering synths to keep fans of synthwave and 80s soundtracks in neon-lit anthems for some time to come." - Neon Dystopia
