It is always an honor to work with brands that value custom music, so when UBTech had me score there new JIMU commercial, I was really excited. They wanted a score that was between a pop track and inspirational orchestral track, that grows over time as the children grow. Instead of saying more about the commercial, score, and brand (if you don't already know them), you can check out the commercial below::

Sometimes my work as a music producer, Electropoint,intersects with my work as a film composer. I was honored to produce the track and score the music video for reality TV Star and formidable artist Honey Davenport's "Draw the Blood". Not only was Honey amazing to work with (again!) but Aja (from Ru Paul's Drag Race) also came on board. The song debuted at #26 on the iTunes Dance Charts. Couldn't be more happy to do a song that blends classical, pop, edm, and hiphop all to drive home a meaningful message.

Scoring Misha Calvert's series on BRIC TV, All Hail Beth, was an absolute highlight for me. And while I absolutely love the music that Misha got out of me, I am so grateful that so many other people felt the same way – enough so that it debuted at #25 on the iTunes Soundtrack charts. Sincere gratitude for everyone who listened to it. And if you'd like to grab your copy, you can do so here.

I was truly grateful to have scored the highly-acclaimed film 'Darkest Age' by Australian production company Other-Side Films. While the picture has done so well at all of the festivals it has been in so far, rarely do festivals have score categories – so I was honored to be an honorable mention at the NY Film Awards for Best Score. Since the film is still screening at festivals around the world there is no link to the full film, but you can check out the trailer here.

I had the absolute pleasure of composing the film score for the award-winning production company Other-Side Films' "Darkest Age". Truly honored that it won Best Indie the world's leading online festival, Top Shorts. Rather than give away the tone of the score, you can check out the trailer here.

It's not all pianos and strings over here. In addition to writing music for films, television, and commercials, I am also producing a lot of music for celebrities under the producer moniker Electropoint. My latest song, "No Day Like Today feat. Electropoint", for reality tv star and recording artist Adam Barta and Lovari hit #26 on the Billboard Dance Club charts. As of the time of this post, we've been on the charts for 3 weeks and climbing.

I have had the good fortune to work with countless Ru Paul's Drag Race Contestants, but I rarely get to talk about the work I do publicly. We truly truly honored to be interviewed by Michel Cook over at World of Wonder Report about my work for these reality tv stars as well as all of my film scoring, and the overlap between them. You can read the full article here.

Being the film composer for Huracán was, in itself, incredibly rewarding. However, there is nothing quite like seeing a glowing review by such a major publication. The New York Times gave us such a incredible writeup. You can check out the article here I'm just blown away to see such an incredible writeup in the New York Times.

Frequently my work as a music producer overlaps with my work as a film composer. It is most common when scoring major brand commercials, and such was the case with the most recent one for the global cosmetic brand Kiehl's. The greatest part about this commercial is that it is starring K-Pop's Hwang Chi-Yeul. Scoring a commercial with such a famous musician presents a series of challenges (will they like it? does it resonate with their aesthetic?), but luckily it was directed by an agency I work with regularly. You can check out the spot on youtube:

I am incredibly excited to announce that I am scoring the feature film Snakehead, directed by renowned director Evan Jackson Leong. I could go on an on about what this film means to me, but check out what NBC news said about it here

I have scored a lot of projects for triple-threat director, writer, actor Misha Calvert, so I was honored to be brought on as composer for her new series coming to BRIC TV called All Hail Beth. I don't want to give away to much about the plot, but let's just say that scoring this series brought me to some new musical worlds.

The Next Come Up is a show about professionals in the TV and Film Industry, and I was incredibly honored to be interviewed by them about what I do for directors. The episode is airing on RCN and Verizon in New York, NJ, and Philadelphia. If you aren't local, you can view the episode online:

Peter Gagnon is a director with a ton of experience in the industry, including an Emmy nomination, and his new project "Wukong Couriers" is in post production. I am so thrilled to be doing the entire score (and sound design as part of the score) on this project. So rarely do I get to take into account the full sonic world during the scoring, and to do it on such an amazing project is incredible. I can't wait to share a link to the trailer and the work when it is all completed. In the meantime, I hope the screen capture whets your appetite.

I have written a lot of scores for the highly-decorated director Misha Calvert. She's been cleaning up at festival after festival, and the most recent win is for her pilot Strut at the NZ Webfest. It was an honor to score this full pilot and even more amazing to see it doing so well across the world. You can read more about it here.

I absolutely love scoring for my friend and epic director Angelo White of Machine Eleven. We've been working on this incredible film for the last 6 months and not been able to share any of it. But finally the trailer was released today and it's already received a great reception by ScreenAnarchy.com. You can watch the full trailer here below:

I had the absolute pleasure of scoring for director Leigh Rivenbark for his break-out film Breathing Through A Straw. The lead was played by Christian Lloyd (A Handmaiden's Tale), so between their two talents it is no surprise this film has been doing well at festivals. The most recent success for the film came at the prestigious Canadian Film Fest where it picked up the Jury Award for Best Short Film. I really am honored to work on every film that I do, but scoring this one was truly a labor of love and a cherished experience. Can't wait until the film is available to share with all!

Filmmaker and actor Cassius Corrigan's feature film Huracán is deep in post-production and I am honored to be scoring this film. There are some amazing actors from both the traditional film and tv world, as well as MMA fighters who are lending their talents to this picture. The musical language that we are exploring is like nothing I've ever done and hopefully like nothing you've ever heard! You can learn more about the film here.

I was truly honored to be interviewed by Indieactivity.com about my work composing for films (as well as commercials). I loved the questions they asked me and was so thrilled to be a part of their interview series. You can read what I had to see here.

Sorice has been out for about a year now, and it has gotten so much attention in Europe. Now the award-winning short is picking up some more titles, but this time in South America at the Rolda Web Fest where it won best short film. You can watch the short here.

Composing for commercials is such a rewarding cross between composer and producer, but nothing is quite as exciting when a custom composition for a commercial gets picked up and turned into a full on brand campaign. My recent track for Clinique's Fresh Pressed line was one such track that ended up in the full line of products.

I absolutely love when I get to bring my film scoring skills and my pop music producer skills together on one project, and that is exactly what composing the music for fashion commercials allows me to do. As a composer and producer at Mirrortone Studios I get a lot of commercial projects from some amazing agencies, and this time I was lucky enough to score two Tom Ford Commercials. You can check them out below!

Cult Classic Trilogy Bear City's third installment has won multiple awards over the past year in major film festivals, including Audience Award for Best Feature Film at the 2016 qFliq Philadelphia Film Festival and Audience Award for best Feature Film at 2016 Reeling Chicago International Film Fest. Finally BearCity 3 received it's NYC premier to a packed house!

I was so honored to have composed the score for this landmark film. Director Doug Langway's portrayal of love and family moved me and inspired me to write music from the heart. Working on this project was an absolute pleasure!

I've been doing a lot of work for triple threat director/writer/actor Misha Calvert, and each project I work on with her seems to do so well on the circuit (definitely because of her not me!). Her dark comedy Pee Sitting Down has been playing in film festivals all over the world (literally, Italy has gotten two different showings!), but it was just accepted into the Hollyshorts Hollywood film festival. Fingers crossed on this one, but judging by the success she has been having we're all very hopeful!

I try to keep all of the news over here about film, tv, and commercial composition, but sometimes I need to do a little cross promotion for my work as producer Electropoint. I was honored when reality tv and popstar Adam Barta asked me to work on the official pop remix of his song flawless with WeTv's celebrity doctor Dr. Miami, so you can imagine my reaction when that song hit #23 on the Billboard Dance Charts and #8 on the iTunes Dance Charts. I won't dive too much more into it here, but if you'd like to learn more you can click over to the Electropoint website.

This is the second short from VFX heavy-hitter Angelo de Witt and it's getting attention from all over the industry. De Witt's first short as director scifi thriller Sorice reached critical acclaim and is in talks with multiple studios for development. The follow up Mother of Children takes a darker turn into the world of psychological horror and gave me (Roman Molino Dunn) a whole new world of imagery to score to. Having worked with Angelo before I knew this was going to be epic and that the music had to be just right to capture the power of his unique vision. The score is full of bowed cymbals, scratching strings, and unusual distant melodic elements. With something this organic and eerie it is safe to say I'm looking forward to expanded this score once the film starts its feature development. You can read the coverage on Screenanarchy.com

A good portion of my work is done as a commercial composer working at Mirrortone Studios. One of my favorite commercials was scoring for Maserati's Awaken Your Soul campaign. It has actually been a few months since this job was completed, but the commercial has recently surpassed 1 million views on YouTube, so I thought it would be the perfect time to share this spot. Check it out below!

It's been almost a year since I started scoring the comedic web-series Activist, and it's been a real pleasure to compose all the music for this tongue-in-cheek program. As a film composer it has been everything you could want, an opening them, stingers, montages, emotional moments, and lots of one-liners and situational irony. The cast, crew, and director were all so amazing that I am hardly surprised that in its first festival in NYC it picked up a win as Best Webseries.
