is the music supervisor and co-founder of Groove Garden.
Raised in Vermont, she moved to NYC in 2000 to attend NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts for Film. While pursuing her BFA, she focused on audio, studying everything from engineering and sound design to midi and musicology. Notably, she was able to take classes designed for The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, established in 2003 at NYU, with founding faculty member and Artistic Director Jason King.
Annie has seen how the music industry works from nearly every side. In Vermont, she did the retail thing at Tones (RIP), a local oasis for independent labels and collectible vinyl, as well as the radio thing, hosting several shows on WJSC at Johnson State College. While attending NYU, she worked for former WFMU director David Newgarden and his artist management company Manage This! David works closely with Robert Pollard and Guided by Voices, and Annie (a huge fan) was given the opportunity to direct and sound mix live concert videos for GBV in 2002 for a Matador Records release.
Between working in tv and music production after college, Annie focused her sights on music supervision, a job that perfectly mixes her passions and backgrounds in music and film. A coveted job for music-heads, an interview with a music supervision company materialized 6 months later when she was thrown into the deep end of commercial supervision.
Since 2007, Annie has made her mark with credits including major campaigns for JC Penney, Vizio, XM Satellite Radio, Mitsubishi, The Vancouver 2010 Olympics, and a multitude of spots for Target. On the big screen, she has worked with director Lena Dunham on her SXSW Film Festival winner Tiny Furniture, and with director Whit Stillman for his latest film Damsels In Distress.
Annie loves sharing good music and helping artists. Her superpower is finding the perfect sync. In her spare time, Annie likes to paint and draw, record music, watch 30 Rock, and make the occasional music video for cult hero Gary Wilson.
