About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I was a staff composer at Scripps Productions for 6 years. I wrote music for one billion promos, show themes, and commercial type things.

Now I have my own composing setup and run my own custom music company.

I compose mostly for TV. HGTV, DiY, Food Network, Fine Living, A&E, Discovery, NatGeo, Court TV, The History Channel and so on.

I love to do image spots and promos.

Hi. I think I've reached the right person. I had a discussion (about creativity and factual things to say about that) in a post BEFORE I left the forum.

Has all posts dissappeared into oblivion. (Tried to do a (simple) search with the search facilltiy up in the right corner.)

For some reason (might be my browser) my response won't send in the messages.

"Yes it is thank you! I had to go back to figure out which email I had made the account under. I apologize for any inconvenience.

On an unrelated note...I've been scouring the forum for some advice and cannot find anything, exactly.

Would I be able to ask you? It's in regards to writing original orchestrations for a new recoding artist (singer)."
