Promoting exceptional music.
MUSIC LICENSING AND SUPERVISION
I have been a performer, producer, writer, promoter and music licensing director. My wife Anne and I, have worked for EMI Music, PolyGram/Universal, BZ Rights, and Entertainment Weekly.
Together we founded Puddle Records (mid-90s) and garnered a single of the week in Billboard one of the first (and few) indie labels to achieve that distinction. We have licensed music for television, film, major motion pictures, worldwide commercial sync and master deals as well as mechanical licensing.
INDEPENDENT PRODUCTION AND DISTRIBUTION
My wife and I co-owned and ran Puddle Records, which released, marketed and sold boutique 7″ vinyl and CD’s for such artists as Jenifer Convertible, Cardinal Woolsey, and Minor Planets. Billboard awarded Cardinal Woolsey, Single of the Week in 1995. Currently, I’m focusing on a new music project, Tenterhooks.
My web experience began with the development of TasteOfBrooklyn in 1996 with no previous programming, database or metadata experience. I then worked for EntertainmentWeekly.com, GM.com, the University of Michigan, and currently at the United Federation of Teachers in NYC as an Interactive Project Manager involved in myriad projects. I’ve also developed multiple private and e-commerce sites on a freelance basis.
I am an interactive content and application delivery specialist. I manage websites, content management systems, web applications, marketing campaigns, and publicity strategies. My resume is here: http://puddlemedia.com/resume.html
