Personal Quote:

That's just to keep me from going insane. Actually, I think it's more of a procrastination device because I spend more time trying to think up a title more than I do to write the thing. - when asked about his offbeat names to his score cues See more »

Trivia:

Went to UCLA where he discovered his passion for scoring movies. See more »

Trademark:

Virtuoso orchestral writing, especially for the brass section, including polytonality and extremly fast high staccato notes for the trumpets. Often uses "pyramid chords" (large chords building gradually up from the lowest note).
