Personal Quote:

[on composing La La Land (2016)] it was two and a half years of nonstop work, going to bed into the wee hours of the night - 1,900 piano demos. Orchestrating every note myself. An unbelievable amount of work and an unbelievable amount of passion. I had to be so passionate about it to keep up with it. I got sick because I wasn't sleeping enough. See more »

Trivia:

Graduated from Harvard, which is also where he met fellow collaborator and best friend, Damien Chazelle. See more »

Trademark:

Often composes jazz score for film, so far including in Guy and Madeline on a Park bench (2009), Whiplash (2014) and La La Land (2016).
