I am most known as the creator of Metroid Metal, but I am also the session guitarist / co-composer for the Emmy-nominated Steven Universe (Cartoon Network), Keiji Yamagishi (Ninja Gaiden), and the Brave Wave label. I have collaborated with Manami Matsumae (Mega Man), mixed and mastered a number of projects including an album for The Avett Brothers, and composed the soundtrack for Alpha Squad on Xbox Live. I also recently acted as producer and full backing band for Jon Poulin's debut album, Terrible but Great, and contributed to a Google Doodle.

Recently, I had the opportunity to act as producer and backup band for Jon Poulin's debut album, Terrible but Great. I played drums, bass, and supplemental guitar - in addition to mixing and mastering the album. Given only single guitar parts as an initial reference, I handled everything else. Examples of the results are below:
