The most exciting recording session I was a part of was…the soundtrack to Rocky in 1976. Bill Conti was my mentor and my teacher. I was by his side as we recorded the entire score and entire soundtrack in three hours, including “Gonna Fly Now.”

The best thing about being a part of NARAS is…NARAS has become a hipper, cooler, more vibrant group of industry professionals from across a wide spectrum who care about the award, the integrity of the process, the TV show and recognizing achievement in our field.

The last great movie I saw was…Gilda with Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford.

When I'm not at work you'll often find me…Trail running, swimming, hiking or sleeping.
