I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
In my job, I deal with rejection on a daily basis. I still lose more pitches than I win. But I also win 5%. And they make the difference 🙂
I couldn’t do this job without knowing that my incredible wife and best friend Katharina, my two daughters Polly and Lea and my business partner Jonathan Gordon are by my side. They will always cheer me up and show me new paths where I might not see them right away !!!
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I love to write Score and Songs for movies and tv shows. Preferably both and arrange the Song melodies for a 90-piece-orchestra and Vice versa!
Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
I am a Russian-Lithuanian-Jewish Guy who grew up in Germany and is now an American Citizen!!
