While I have occasionally wished that I only wrote one type of music (e.g. tv music), the fact is that my journey has been very wide ranging. This was not necessarily my original intent; rather, it simply reflects the opportunities that have come my way. For example, I’ve been asked why I’ve scored so many documentaries. Simple. Because I was asked. Likewise with tv commercials. I didn’t go looking for those jobs. Instead, I was asked if I would take a crack at various spots. My answer — sure! And so it goes. As an independent, freelance composer, this flexibility and diversity has been a saving grace.
