About Me

I’m Craig, a Canadian-born, New York City-based musician and producer. I collaborate with game developers, directors and performers to create high-quality, idiosyncratic art that intrigues, inspires, and delights. From cheerful jungle carnivals to dank dungeon crawls, I help my collaborators make singular worlds come alive by providing the irresistible aural hooks for their rich and colorful visions. 

I love to do game jams such as Ludum Dare and to playtest video games. You can find me attending video game industry events such as GDC and PAX.

As a songwriter, I am signed to Rough Trade Publishing, and I’ve had songs featured in TV and film, including Nurse Jackie and Dumb and Dumber To.

Through my band Miniboone (2008-2016), I’ve played Bonnaroo and South by Southwest, and have opened for acts such as the B-52s. My music is informed both by the high-energy homegrown spirit of underground rock n’ roll as well as the formal music theory courses I took at Oberlin College. (Random bit of geek cred: I attended Oberlin as an East Asian Studies major and worked for the fine artist Takashi Murakami for a few years.)

Email me if you’d like to set up a time to talk about your project, or if you just want me to try out your game. I know you’re working hard to create something that people can obsess over; I’ll be there to elevate and magnify your vision. Let’s make something awesome together!
