Mini Bio
George’s origin story begins in Houston, Texas during the 80’s and 90’s, where he developed musical powers as a result of a childhood of exposure to Saturday morning cartoons, superhero comics, movies about aliens, monsters, mutants, time travel, action heroes and Jedi. The melodies of John Williams, Alan Menken, and Alan Silvestri, along with a big imagination inspired his early forays into composing tunes for storytelling.

George has co-written a song with Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, scored YouTube Premium’s longest running show ESCAPE THE NIGHT, and created the viral hit STAR WARS MUSICAL which has nearly half a million views. George’s range of work also covers 17 feature film credits, custom music for trailers, over 60 short films, and video games.

George studied composition and film scoring at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music. Currently, George is one of eight composers selected to the Universal Film Composer Initiative, the first Hollywood studio program to nurture diverse voices in composing, and includes mentorship with Universal Film Music executives and DreamWorks Animation executives.

George plays clarinet, piano, guitar and picked up Chinese woodwind instruments after studying Chinese music. He resides in Los Angeles, where in his limited free time, he can surf and snowboard in the same day. His plans for world domination include earning an EGOT, becoming more famous than Irish-playwright George Bernard Shaw, and perfecting time travel.
