producer / composer / sound designer / keyboardist

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

Based in Los Angeles, I work with clients and artists globally. Email me through Bandcamp, send me a message on Facebook or tweet to me.

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 tracks for a number of projects and records such as legendary geek rapper YTCracker's cyberpunk album Introducing Neals. Credited on 12 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 DEF CON, Comic Con and Game On Expo alongside acts like YTCracker, Dual Core and MC Frontalot. I have written soundtracks and created sound effects for video games such as Combat Overrun, Power Drive 2000 and VirtuaVerse.
