Hi, my name is Steve and I've been writing and recording music since I was a teenager.
I spent my pre-college years playing in punk bands, recording music in my basement, and spending my money at record stores in and around Philadelphia and South Jersey. After high school, I braved the punishing cold of upstate New York to achieve a degree in TV, Radio, and Film from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. Shortly after graduating in 2008, I packed up and headed west like so many of my fellow Syracuse alumni to pursue a career in TV and film in California.
In the nine years I've lived in Los Angeles, I've worked in post production, at several Apple stores, DJ'd events big and small, and written music for short films, ads, television, and video games.
Along the way I won ASCAP awards for my work on hit TV shows like Pawn Stars (History Channel) and The Voice (NBC).
some of my 100+ TV credits include:
American Idol, Coupled, and American Grit on FOX
The US Open, MLB, NFL, and NASCAR on FOX
The Taste on ABC
Saturday Night Live, Last Call with Carson Daly, and Food Fighters on NBC
VICE and Any Given Wednesday with Bill Simmons on HBO
Inside Amy Schumer on Comedy Central
The Real Housewives series and Top Chef on Bravo
The Legend of Mick Dodge on National Geographic
American Pickers, Forged in Fire, and Counting Cars on History Channel
Game of Arms on AMC
Catfish, Girl Code, Guy Code, Real World and True Life on MTV
Say Yes to the Dress and Little People Big World on TLC
Love and Hip Hop and Mob Wives on VH1
Dance Moms on Lifetime
Rich Kids of Beverly Hills on E!
Tiny House Nation and Tiny House Hunting on FYI
The Chase on Game Show Network
Through many years in the industry, I've grown accustomed to short deadlines and quickly evolving needs. Music in today's media projects require more thought and consideration than ever as listeners become more sophisticated and expect fresh and new sounds.
Finding the balance between these demands is where I excel.
