Opportunities for composing for film included music for the MLB production of “Intersecting Sparks.” The film was a Silver Winner at the 2013 Davey Awards, received a recognition of excellence at the 2014 National Broadcasting Society Convention in Hollywood, CA, selected for the 2015 National Communications Association Film Festival and has been shown on PBS stations throughout the country. In 2013 the Pittsburgh-based Unseam’d Shakespeare Company commissioned six songs for their production of the Davenant and Dryden production of “The Tempest.” In a review of the performance, one of the songs for Ariel was “not only humorous but somehow sublime” (entertainmentcentralpittsburgh.com 6/15/2013). In addition he provided music for the fall 2015 Theatre-in-the-Grove production of Qui Nguyen’s “She Kills Monsters" and 2018 production of "Twelfth Night."
