In 2022, the soundtrack album to Top Gun: Maverick, on which he was a featured guitarist, was nominated for a Grammy™ award for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album.
Over his 20-year career he’s developed a unique and versatile style blending elements of Classical orchestration with modern techniques resulting in a sound that is both timeless and contemporary and has made him a sought-after collaborator of some of the most respected composers in Hollywood. His ability to create music that perfectly complements the visuals and enhances the emotional impact of a film has made him a valuable asset for a wide range of film genres.

His score for Commerce was nominated for best short score at the Park City Film Music Festival
