I'm Joe! Thanks for visiting my site. I'm a music composer and sound designer living in Philadelphia, PA and I do all things music and audio (custom music, jingles, sound design, mixing, location audio).
I always take a detailed approach to every project, critically thinking about the sonic identity of every brand I work with. Since starting my career in 2009, I've worked on projects for brands like IBM, Comcast, Sophos, Nike, and The Carolina Theatre. I also love providing creative direction for audio driven projects - like this piece for IBM Systems Worldwide, or this project for IBM Storage.
In 2018 I started my own freelance audio business, lovingly named "The Chicken" - you can check out all of that work at - www.thechicken.net
In addition to composition and sound design, I'm very passionate about teaching others about music and audio. I have taught college courses and private lessons in music composition and production, guitar, and saxophone. I am always open to taking on private students at all skill levels.
If you ever need assistance with audio on any project, or would like to inquire about private instruction, please don't hesitate to reach out.
Thanks for stopping by!
