July 15, 2015 - New Clandestiny Album - The Journey Aum
I am proud to present my fourth full length album entitled, The Journey Aum. This 17-track album is a cinematic sonic journey, delving deep into the subconscious energy of the body, mind, and spirit of all sentient beings, the Earth and the Uni-Verse, to release the cathartic expression of timeless truths we all contain within. The album is completeley instrumental, with the exception of the last track. Throughout I layer my voice to add ambience, textures, atmosphere and the feeling of expansiveness. You can read more about my vision for the album at: thejourneyaum.com
Feb 22nd, 2015 - Super Bowl Commercial 2015
Here is an another awesome commercial I helped work on with a great team for Casino Law Group and laywer Jamie Casino in Savannah. This commercial is another unprecedented 2-minute commercial that aired locally in the Savannah region during the 2015 Super Bowl Half-Time Show. I am really impressed with the character development, story, pacing, and overall cinematography. My roles involved aiding in storytelling, editing and pacing, music supervision, design consultation and moral support. Great job team!
Feb 11th, 2015 - New Clandestiny Album - AuDioSoul Vo1. 1 - DreamTime Journey
This was a powerful week for me, I spent five hours with my didjeridoo I received last August from the amazing Singing Alive sound gathering in Ashville, NC, and ended up recording this new meditation music! It is amazing all of the sounds possible with the didj... such a powerful plant teacher!
Jan 15th, 2015 - New Clandestiny Album - Songs of Light
Just finished a BIG labor of love, my third full-fledged Clandestiny album. Clandestiny is my heart and soul. There is something so powerfully healing and cathartic about creating this atmospheric soundscapes.

Keeping up the steady web design work, this time for Incredible Ink Tattoo studio in Hilton Head. Really fun getting the imaging and branding down with them. Big thanks to friend and DJ, Ede Gee for getting me the gig and helping with the inspiration for the design process.

Worked with a unique client recently, a bishop turned rapper, Todd Thompson, AKA The Profess'ir. Todd really impressed me with his accomplishments and professional spirit. It's no wonder he is a success at so many trades in his life and work. I was also very inspired by the music and was privilaged to work with such a talented individual.

Had the pleasure of designing a site for a friend's father's cover band. Good Wood. Fun guys, great energy. I had fun in discovering that the band's 'mascot' was Woody from Toy Story. That made the design of the site that much more fun. Learning more about Wordpress and it's depths everyday!

Some more design work, this time for talented illustrator and fine artist friend Lauren Schwind. Lauren needed a portfolio site for school, so I helped her create this. At first I wanted to go the Wordpress route, but decided that for my clients needs, it would be unnecessary, and did the traditional HTML/CSS approach instead.

Did some web design work this month for friend Bill DeYoung, entertainment writer of the Savannah Connect Newspaper. This was a great experience, as I got my first experience in the Wordpress world. What a great way to design, and it makes it so easy for me to update from afar, and to teach my clients how to do the same.

A fun photoshop project I took upon this morning after being inspired by local entrepeneur and owner of Southern Pine, Ramsey Khalidi's photo. The table legs inspired smokestacks, and the rest just formed from there!

July 22nd, 2012 - Music
Today is the official release of a collaborative video directed by local film maker Adam Bailey and put together by many members of our Savannah music community and my band, Word of Mouth This is actually what you would call a PRE-mix, even though the song is aptly titled, WOM Remix, (WOM short for Word of Mouth).
The hip-hop community in Savannah is definitely thriving, as made apparent by locals, Knife and Kid Syc, collaborating with Miggs Son Daddy and produced by his brother in New York, The Monsta!
WOM is currently mixing down the 12-song album we recorded last fall in Nashville, and this is a 'remix' of the title track, "Word of Mouth". It will be nice to have the original mixed and mastered to compare the two. Check out the Word of Mouth website for actual stems from the Nashville tracks. And without further adieu, the WOM Remix:

What's up gang? It's been quite some time since I've been free to update, but that means that there is a beautiful backlog of content that I have been working on to share with you all! The most recent is my first demo reel, comprised of work since I began learning Motion Graphics in 2010. These last few years have been such an adventure of learning, creation, and finding the balance between my love for motion media design, animation, and music composition. So to no further ado, please enjoy my demo reel!

It's been awhile since an update, as I've been busy building my band Word of Mouth's website! This is like the fourth or fifth incarnation, and I even spent a few months building a flash site! But ultimately I returned to what I know best, good ole CSS/HTML. I'm really proud of my work, I feel it's my best to date. Please take the time to visit and let me know what you think!

A quick ad I made starring myself for Epiphone guitars. No I don't have sponsorship through Epiphone, but a guy can dream can't he? Perhaps we'll call this my manifestation of a dream.

Was inspired to work on this after thumbing from some recent shots when friends were in town. This ladder was used to pull the Spanish Moss off of our trees, as they can be at times a bit suffocating. The rest of the piece pretty much just made itself.

Just made a few updates to the site, should be uploading some final projects from my last Fall 2010 quarter at SCAD very soon. I've been getting the itch to write some new music as I've been so immersed in the visual world of things lately. Check out some of my tunes on Soundcloud:
