Forrest Wentzel

Composer/Library Administrator
Forrest began his musical career as a classical pianist but his tastes became increasingly broad and decidedly less refined. Now he uses the power of broad taste for good, listening to music from all genres to track down the best cues for our library. When he’s not helping to curate a massive production music library, he writes music of his own. He hasn’t been at it for long, but his credits include song placements on ABC, Food NetworkPBS and Jewelry Television.
