In Spring of 2017, I worked on the music for a beautiful ad campaign made by Johannes Leonardo for Mass Mutual.  The spot features stunning "macro" shots of space and earth and "micro" shots of everyday events. The juxtaposition of things both small and big gives you a sense of the world's interconnectedness.

Run The Track, It's Bobsled Time (Feat. Sidney Mills)

Role: Composer, Songwriter, Engineer

In 2014, Sidney Mills (of the legendary reggae band Steel Pulse) and I wrote a song for a video about the Jamaican Bobsled team, which then went viral. In 2018, we remade the song into a full-length track and music video as the official theme song for the Jamaican Bobsled team. I really enjoyed working with Sidney and hope the song becomes the anthem for Jamaica's Winter Olympics for years to come. Run The Track!
