Jim & ChaplinIn my work as a freelance writer, editor, and author, I have written and edited for a broad range of projects in print and online for clients such as FSM Online, Intrada, Varèse Sarabande, La-La Land Records, The Broadway League, Charity Network, American Red Cross Greater New York Region, SideTrip Media, Array Magazine, and Schlumberger.

I hold a Bachelor of Music from The University of Texas at Arlington and a Master of Music from The University of Texas, with concentrations in Clarinet Performance. I’m currently writing a book on the film music of Charlie Chaplin to be published by McFarland & Company.

On those rare occasions when I’m not working on your project, you can find me listening to film music, buried in a book, hanging out with my nut job of a dog, and/or gently requesting tourists to get the hell out of my way.
