Paris began his music career after studying orchestration and composition at Los Angeles City College, John Williams’ alma mater, and classical guitar at Santa Monica College. He got his start in the world of music production when he began scoring films and video games.
Paris’s true love lies in composing and producing music. While most of his compositions are rooted in symphonic music he is also adept in rock, pop and jazz styles. His music has been used in corporate videos for NASA, Exxon, Intel, Sikorsky Helicopter, Raytheon, Immucor, Carrier, General Electric, and Boeing, and he has composed production music for Ole Music Box Publishing and Digital Juice.

In 2014, Paris founded his own production company, the Remote Orchestra, which provides soundtrack recording services to composers and producers around the world.
He was inspired to begin recording and modernizing the facilities at Georgian Film Studio because of its unique design and sound. This enabled him to work on trailer music albums for Brand X and Roba Music, and led him to found another company, Private Labs Audio, Georgia’s first sample library company. He has also recorded and produced world class sound libraries for 8DIO, Audio Imperia, and Impact Soundworks and now creates libraries exclusively for his own brand Audio Wonder.
Paris regularly travels around the world, helping others perfect their own musical abilities and inspiring people to tap into their own hard work and creativity to excel in the world.
