I grew up listening to old Willie Nelson, Led Zeppelin and Johnny Cash records with my dad in rural Texas. At a young age I was struck by the powerful force of music in film. I remember walking to the theater as a kid to see films like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Platoon and Chariots of Fire. As a young, classical pianist I would rush to get the scores so I could recreate the music at home on the piano.
In 1999 I moved to Los Angeles and immediately began working on my first film, Greg Berlanti's The Broken Heart’s Club (Sony/Screen Gems). Merging my two passions as a classical pianist and my natural instincts to bring forward a creator's music ideas, I realized I could make this my path and that there was value in this obsession of mine, in the role of music supervisor.
To date, I’ve supervised music for over 200 episodes of broadcast television on networks including Fox, ABC, The WB, and The CW. For 9 feature films I’ve handled a wide array of creative, logistical and clearance needs for studios such as Touchstone, Sony, 20th Century Fox, Sundance and Warner Brothers. I’ve built enduring relationships through my ability to deliver the music unique to every client's story.
