What do you do with your limited free time?

What is free time? I guess watch movies, drive in my Jeep, hang out with my family.

If you could travel to any period based on the music, when would you go?

I would love to go back to the days when Lincoln was president. It would be hard, dirty, dangerous and sad, but I’m fascinated by this period of history. Alternately, I would love to be in Vienna in the late 1700s. That is when the magic happened.

What is your least favorite instrument?

I kind of love everything, because there is a use and purpose for all instrument. But if pressed, I would say that I’m not a fan of bongos. I own them, yet when I hear them I roll my eyes.

When did you discover that you wanted to pursue film music?

No question. Age 8, sitting in a dark theater, watching STAR WARS.

What is your favorite song that you don’t want to admit?

I don’t mind admitting it, because it’s kind of awesome: Britney Spears “Til the World Ends”
