"Do what you love and you'll always be successful."
Someone once said this to me and it really stuck. I'm a 4th generation music professional and proud to say that I love what I do. I look forward to getting up each day and going to work. Not many people can make that claim.
I am head of Creative Sync & Licensing for ole; one of the World’s foremost independent music and entertainment companies. In this capacity I oversee a vast catalog of music copyrights and intellectual property and manage the outside usage of those assets. I place music in film, TV, videogames, advertisements, toys, games, consumer products and everywhere in between. I love what I do and I'm damn good at it.
Additionally, I am a frequent speaker and lecturer at various universities covering topics ranging from general music business overview, music copyright, music technology, and licensing. Being the son and grandson of great educators, I find myself drawn back towards education at every turn.
When not waxing poetic on the business of music, my time is spent chasing twin 8 year old girls around the hills of Tennessee. So far I've managed a great run working in and with music, but these girls are by far my greatest masterpiece.
