“The most rewarding & interesting part of my experience at the Los Angeles Film Studies Center was working as an intern for 20th Century Fox Music. I was able to attend scoring sessions for "Family Guy", "The Simpsons", and "A Night at the Museum", where I had the chance to observe and meet legenday composer Alan Silvestri, of "Forrest Gump" and "Back to the Future" fame.”
