  3. The short film, Pulling Up Roots, was created by Cecelia Condit in 2015. I composed the music for the film, including two cues for voice. This the first of them. The singer is soprano, Ruth Engel Brown.

  4. Short film directed by Kara Mulrooney and Susan Kerns of Girl Friday Films. I composed all the music cues. This excerpt is from the beginning of the film and contains two music cues.

  5. I Learn Something New Every Single Day [1999 - ongoing] is an interactive piece designed for galleries. The project is an investigation into the common saying, "You learn something new every day." The project documents physical growth, by primarily using the now ubiquitous daily snapshot. The project also seeks to document inner changes and concerns. The most important thing I learned that day is encapsulated in a sentence. Ironically, the format seems to highlight how difficult it is to map out how a person changes.

    The project does not have much online presence as I sought to control the project's reach.

    This project was written about in Jennifer New's book, Drawing From Life (Princeton Architectural Pres, 2005)
