I began my own practice in 1994 and since then have had the pleasure to work with individuals and companies undertaking virtually every aspect of what can be very broadly called the entertainment industry, from musicians, writers and producers, to managers and record labels and publishers, from actors to production companies, from voice over producers to the wife of a famous musician, to various websites and other start-ups, to a music based charity, and practically anything else one could imagine.
I enjoy working with people new to the entertainment industry as well as with sophisticated long-term participants. Each has its own unique experiences it brings to the project then at hand.
