I'm Tim Greiving, and I write.
My specialty/obsession is film music.
Whether you need a feature article
for your magazine or website, album notes,
a film or album review, or a radio feature,
I have experience and a knack for crafting
rich and cliché-free copy.
Have a gander at my samples
and my blog, projector & orchestra.
I have a master's in arts journalism
from USC. I love my wife, my family,
dark coffee, John Williams,
and Oxford commas.
