I am overjoyed to be joining The Orchard’s sync licensing team based in New York, and I feel honored to get to work with all my fellow Orchardites.
Quick background on me: I was raised not too far from Jim Leavitt‘s home turf in suburban Boston, MA. As a drummer from a young age, I fell in love with music and was inspired by a range of influences from Blood, Sweat & Tears to John Coltrane and even musical theater when I lead acted in my high school’s productions. As I pursued a music business major at Hofstra University, I interned at Focus Features in Music/Business Affairs which officially turned me onto music supervision and licensing. Upon graduating, I music supervised/coordinated multiple productions including 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild.
For the past three and a half years, I have also been building a strong client base in all media music synchronization at music publisher Imagem (Mark Ronson, Elvis Presley, Rodgers & Hammerstein). I am excited to continue servicing my clients from Imagem now at The Orchard!
Please feel free to drop a line in the comments to say hi. I sincerely look forward to a productive work relationship between us all.
