The Price of Hope (2023 feature doc)
A compilation of my score for "The Price of Hope." A harrowing yet optimistic documentary by Caroline Karoki, the film tells the stories of Kenyan girls who have suffered the horrors of female genital mutilation (FGM) and the people who have made it their lives' work to help them. This is my first of hopefully many more feature films to come.
It's Still Your Bed (2019)
Another collaboration with Tyler Reeves. This film follows the story of a young man who, with the help of his new roommate, is able to embrace who he really is. With the exception of two video game source cues, which I also composed, the film is devoid of music until the climax. I wanted to give this important moment the musical payoff that it deserved. Homemade synths and static string harmonics hold in suspense before giving way to a release of motor-rhythmic felt piano. Roll credits.

Welcome to Malaysia (2016)
The final scene from Rahmah Pauzi's documentary, "Welcome to Malaysia." For this film, Rahmah wanted me to create a score that reflected Malaysia's multicultural society without falling into the trap of making a cheap attempt at the imitation of traditional music. To do so I used a palette consisting of instruments from each of Malaysia's dominant cultures: Malay, Indian, and Chinese, while sticking to more typical Western harmonies and melodies.
