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 »

Trivia:

Graduated from School of Visual Arts with a BFA Film and Video in 1990. See more »

Trademark:

Often gives his score cues pun titles. See more »
