(audio samples coming soon)

As an A-List Violinist, including Principal for John Williams (Indiana Jones 4), Danny Elfman and John Ottman, Richard’s resume includes work with such composers as John Barry, Hans Zimmer, James Horner, Howard Shore, James Newton Howard, and the late great Jerry Goldsmith. A short list of film credits include Spiderman I, II, & III, The Kingdom, Matrix I, II, & III, Pirates of the Caribbean I, II & III, Superman Returns, Munich, Titanic, Lion King, King Kong, the Fantastic Four I & II, Beowulf, American Gangster, and the Simpsons. Artists he has recorded with on a regular basis include Frank Sinatra, Puff Daddy, Aerosmith, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, Kenny G, Faith Hill, and Barbra Streisand. He has also just completed recording his string arrangements of 3 new songs for Pop Star Natasha Bedingfield.

First Violinist in the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and former member of the Houston Symphony, Richard brings 20+ years of orchestral and Hollywood Studio experience to his compositions. His cutting-edge soundscapes for film and games range in character from quirky to provocative, somber to humorous, sci-fi to lush, epic orchestral. His Renaissance, Baroque, and ethnic themes project you to far-off places in time, while his New Age offerings bring you right back to Topanga Canyon, California, planet Earth - his home.

Richard was recently chosen 1 of 12 composers worldwide, and 1 of only 3 Americans, to participate in the prestigious 2007 ASCAP Film Composers’ Workshop which recognizes participants as the up-and-comers to watch. This workshop brings together top industry professionals and challenges participants to compose, arrange, and conduct an assigned film cue. Film cues were recorded with the Hollywood Studio Orchestra at 20th C. Fox.
