Westheimer's signature sports sound is typically a blend of high powered Hollywood orchestral palettes with a energetic rock and roll twist!
Cody has scored 40 independent feature films and documentaries over the last dozen years. From comedies and dramas to horror and action flicks, Cody's versatility and enthusiasm has made him a sought out composer for projects of all scopes and sizes.
