Key Accomplishments

I think life is fun and you can only take it so seriously. So here is what I've done so far. I have written #1 hit songs around the world and I have lost an Emmy. (they call it being nominated) I have had major publishing and record deals. (Both big mistakes) I have written over 200 songs for film and TV. I am an award winning film producer. Best Producer at The Beverly Hills Film Festival (the movie took 10 years to finish and 2 of my actors were dead when I got my award) I love artist development. (making rock stars and records)

My goal is to create a series of companies and services that will enable musical artists to be successful making music. To be fair and transparent in all my dealings and to prove that the really nice guys finish first.

Specialties:Music in all forms of media including Composition,Production,Licensing and Scoring. My credits include # hits, Emmy nominations and gold soundtracks.
