In this interview, we discuss how he got started in film/tv composing, his influences and sound choices, his views on how the production music landscape has shifted over the years, as well as personal inspirational tips to up and coming composers.
In 2004 he started his own production music catalog, Future World Music, which has gained industry and retail success as well as extensive popularity on social media among fans all over the world. His music has been featured in some of the top motion picture ad campaigns including “How to Train Your Dragon”, “A Night at the Museum 2 & 3”, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 1 & 2”, “Epic”, “Frozen” and “Into The Woods” among many others.
