Greta on the Greenway

Greta on the Greenway

I recently completed the music for another project produced by Animated Traffic Law. Commissioned by the Portland Bureau of Transportation, this traffic safety video was designed to educate viewers about greenway features, safe cycling routes, and “sharrows.”

The soundtrack is intended to create a dramatic build to accompany the family's bicycle journey. The intro and outro utilize a typewriter as an symbol of the government agency presentation, while the samba infused music it accompanies creates a fun and festive atmosphere.

New radio spot for Oregon State Marine Board

New radio spot for Oregon State Marine Board

I’ve just completed a new 60-second radio spot called “Stayin’ Afloat” that will be airing statewide in Oregon for the coming year. It’s another public service announcement. This message is for lifejacket safety by the Oregon State Marine Board.

Written as a parody of...ahem...a popular song from the 70’s, our goal was to make this a fun and catchy reminder to always wear your lifejacket.

New radio spot for ODOT

New radio spot for ODOT

I’ve just completed a new 60-second radio spot called “The Safety Step” that will be airing statewide in Oregon for the coming year. It’s a public service announcement for the Oregon Department of Transportation, written to be a catchy and fun jingle in the style of the Andrews Sisters.

All these 3-part harmonies make me wish I’d learned to sing when I was hitting on all those drums as a kid.
