I'm a multi-instrumentalist composer/songwriter, so I understand every aspect of how your song works, not just the recording and mixing process. My specialty is elevating unfinished song ideas with catchy, flamboyant production, or taking a finished song to the next level with clear mixes that burst with personality.

Robert began dissecting music before he started creating it. At age twelve, he taught himself to use MIDI sequencers to understand how the pieces of the songs fit together. Thus began a lifelong obsession with creating unique, memorable musical wholes from diverse and unexpected pieces.

Since that time, he has taught himself to play guitar, bass, drums and percussion, and piano/keys; how to record, produce, mix, and master music at home; and how to write and arrange music that is at once unconventional and catchy.

Robert could best be described as a musical mad scientist, combining disparate influences and unexpected elements to create memorable and unconventional sounds. He is influenced by everything from modern Top 40 to ragtime, from 80s punk rock to Final Fantasy soundtracks. He seeks to create not just a song, but a "sound;" not just an album, but a world.

Robert is an accomplished composer and arranger. He draws from a huge variety of influences to create works that are diverse, yet cohesive; familiar, yet novel. Robert has over a decade of experience composing for film, theatre, musicals, and video games. He has arranged pieces for a cappella chorus, orchestra, jazz bands, and pop/rock bands. He has been commissioned to create a soundtrack of original music for a horror-genre theatre production, and to compose music for musicals.
