Personal Quote:

The film composer has two main pressures... Time and Quality. Usually it is necessary to compose high quality music in a very short time and in most of my cases usually two weeks because money has already been budgeted. See more »


Works with music orchestrator Jack Hayes. See more »


Uses low sounding insturments in his films. Usually with a lot of his B-Movie and Cult films.
