"I try to write library music that will bring added value to productions; music with an emotional core that helps tell stories and makes sense of big pictures. It can be fine line between producing material that demands too much of the images and producing material that is little more than wallpaper. I hope that people who come to my material will find something familiar and new as well as a few surprises and a bit of soul." -- Jim Copperthwaite
