About
I'm a producer who is working towards placing music for sync (TV, film, advertising). I have many years of experience at recording and engineering, also a solid guitarist and bassist with rudimentary keyboard skills. I have excellent equipment and know how to use it. While I’m versatile stylistically I have a strong preference for pop music. The 3 minute pop song is to me the ultimate expression of perfection! I listen to a lot of current music and collaborate with singer/songwriters regularly. But I’m always looking for new playmates. ;-)

Songwriting Achievements:
I recorded a solo album in the late 90s that got positive reviews and some interest from an A&R guy at Sony 550 (now defunct). I also was a studio musician in L.A. in the mid-90s and co-wrote several pieces that appeared in local radio and TV spots, including a big band piece for the 76 gas station chain that ran in heavy rotation for about 6 weeks (very cool to be watching TV and have your ad come up!)

I've never submitted anything to a songwriting competition (I know, shame on me), so I don't have any of those kinds of awards, but of course I'm open to the idea.
Personal Songwriting Goals:
Get music placed in an ad, TV show or film
Collaboration Goals:
publishing deal, sync placement (film, TV, video games), niche/independent artist release
