Lyricist • Composer • Playwright

Milo believes that as a composer, as a lyricist and as a playwright, it is his job to add color to a world left far too joyless, and inspire light in a world far too dark. Milo believes, "life without love is black & white and life is best lived in color." Nowhere is that more aparent than in his work. Milo strives to bring light, warmth and depth to every project he is a part of.


Milo's true passion is in creating work that inspires joy and wonder in children, having almost gone to medical school for child psychiatry, Milo has always had a love of helping children and developed a unique understanding for some of our youngest audiences.

A spec cue for an action scene from the animated X-Men series.

"Whether your project is big or small, ordinary or extraordinary, I am eager to help bring your project to life."
