We utilise music in our regular daily existences for some reasons, from unwinding at home to hitting the dance floor with companions. It sets the temperament for whatever movement we do and changes our condition, contingent upon the sort of music we play.

Pretty much, everybody, I know tunes into music, essentially on the grounds that there's something out there for everybody. You see individuals tuning into music when they're taking the prepared to…

Looking for a Jail Scene

I’m currently working on a documentary which will re-create with actors the beginning story of how six addicts got into drugs.

My question to you is, we have to do a scene in a jail, but I’ve heard that it’s pretty difficult to get a permit to shoot there because of security issues. Is there any place in Sacramento that might have a room that could pass for a jail cell? There’s a short scene where one of the addicts is in his cell praying and it’s essential that he does this in what…

Music composer desires an opportunity to "Create" Original background music for your Film.

I love music and desire to create something substantial with others such as film or similar medium. My goal is to find another person /group who is creating a project in film that would click with my own personal vibe.

If you would like to discuss a project with me, e-mail me at or…
