His expertise lies in writing music for film, games, and commercials on screen, and the internet, using his passion for storytelling to help create impactful, emotional stories and experiences.

I would recommend working with Bryan because he is a professional, but also a friendly person. There's no point in working with someone in this industry if you can't get along with them, and he is very easy to work with.
-Rollyn Stafford, Writer/Director

With an impressive portfolio, Bryan has scored dozens of films that have been screened globally, including the powerful documentary Behind the Bullet, directed by Heidi Yeman, and Rollyn Stafford's feature film 1 Dead Dog, as well as Jason Rosenblatt's Vicious.

He's a great collaborator, and super skilled at integrating all my notes in creative ways. It didn't take long before we had a finished result the whole team was incredibly happy with, and part of me wishes it could have taken longer.
