Nebraska Education Telecommunication's docuseries "What If..." showcases new, innovative, and futuristic ideas that were created by Nebraskans from different walks of life, from biomechanics, to agriculture, to economic development, and much more.
I was approached by the producer of this show in 2018 to submit works that could be used in the docuseries. I sent in one of my first concert band works, entitled "Flight", which can now be heard on Season 1, Episode 2 of the series.
In 2020, I was approached again to submit a work for a new episode. This time, I submitted "I Told the Stars About You", a three movement oboe sonata. This piece can be heard on Season 2, Episode 2 of the series.
