Jody bought his first CD, Beastie Boys' "License To Ill" at the age of 13. Shortly thereafter, it was everything from Rock to Alternative to Metal to New Age. His older brother introduced him to rap with Easy-E, Dre, and N.W.A., while his father passionately swayed Jody's focus on folk icons such as Harry Chapin and Paul Simon, and his mother was always steady with her love for Pop music.
Originally from Safety Harbor, Florida, Jody is the president and founder of HD Music Now, an Orange County based music licensing and supervision firm. Jody started working in the entertainment business in 2001 at CNN where Jody worked in both Atlanta and New York until leaving in 2006. While in New York, he composed a piece of music for CNN Headline News' "Nancy Grace". This piece of music went on to become the show's All Point's Bulletin Theme.
Jody's passions are music publishing, writing songs, going to movies, playing soccer, eating sushi and spending time with his wife and son, Samantha and Jude, and his two dogs Amaya and Dexter. Jody has music supervised films such as "Don't Fade Away" starring Mischa Barton and Beau Bridges, "Camp Hope" starring Andrew McCarthy, Jessie Eisenberg, and Dana Delaney, and other films.
