Location: STILL in Atlanta, Ga

Age: Not young enough to try it, too old enough to know better(or sometimes just too damned tired)

Sex: well, duh!

Education: I'm all for it! Actually, a college graduate in, would you believe, Religion. Fascinating stuff, just not real practical to make one wealthy.

First Score I Owned: "Star Wars: Episode 4-A New Hope". Yeah, the original on LP. I listened to it so much that when I bought the CD I couldn't help but to keep listening for the scratches and ticks I had come to know and love within the LP. This was the one that got me hooked onto soundtracks. The greatest ever in my opinion. Not one boring or unlistenable track. As perfect as a score could be.

Favorite Score: See above.

Favorite Composer: John Williams(just beating Jerry Goldsmith buy a nose)

Most Scores Owned by Composer: Jerry Goldsmith. R.I.P. maestro.

My Most Rare and Expensive Score: "The Lighthorsemen" by Mario Millo. Valued around $250.00. A fantastic and rousing piece of music to a great Australian made film.

The Worst Score I have Ever Owned: Ok, its a toss up between "Event Horizon" by Michael Kamen and "Ladyhawke" by Andrew Powell, who I don't think(I may be wrong) has composed anything since. At least I hope not. The music almost ruined a wonderful movie.

My Favorite Composers: John Williams, Jerry Golsmith, James Newton Howard, Bruce Broughton, James Horner, John Barry, Basil Poledouris, Hans Zimmer(but not always), Miklos Rosza, Maurice Jarre(except when he uses synth-"Witness" being an extreme and wonderful exception), Randy Newman.

My Favorite Up and Comings: Sean Callery, Edward Shearmur, Brian Tyler.

My Least Favorite: Brad Fiedel, Elia Cimral, Mark Isham(on occasion he is good-The River Runs Through it is a great example), Mark Mancina and Michael Kamen(also on occasion he is good-Band of Brothers is his best in years).

MOST HATED COMPOSER: Georgio Moroder-Almost single-handedly brought down the popularity and use of the classical film composer and orchestral music for film. "Burn the Heretic!"(ok, not really but you get my point!)

Hobbies and Interest: Besides film music I also love movies(of course), screenwriting and independent filmmaking, reading books, computer games, soccer, tennis, bowling(yes,bowling) and going to plays and art galleries.

Current Occupation: Dispatch Operations Manager.

What I Could Have Been: Professional Soccer Player, but I tore a cartilage in each of my knees. That pretty much did it for me in college. It was devastating.

It's been about 2 years since I update my list. It may be another before I get around to doing it.

Scores That I Currently Own:(not entirely correct anymore)

I will list these by composer and in no particular order. Many of these are on LP or cassette and will be noted as such. I have just now begun to trade CDR's and will list them in a seperate category near the end.
