Personal Quote:

I think my writing has an old-fashioned feel to it, for whatever reason. I'm just so influenced by the music that I listened to growing up, a lot of it out of the 60's, so it has a natural tendency to feel like it's from another era. See more »


He created the music for the updated 2005 version of Space Mountain at Disneyland. See more »
