I currently work in the film industry in music preparation at Walt Disney studios and as a performer. I play oboe and English horn for recordings/tv & film soundtracks and also work as a background extra. I've also done work as a composer. Additionally, I often 'sweeten' composer's mock ups for film and pop/rock tracks with live oboe/English horn. I'm really interested in introducing my instruments (that are typically classical) into new genres. If you have a film score that has rock/heavy metal/pop or ethnic sounds I'd be interested in collaborating with your composer to record my instrument. In addition to my music career, I'm looking for work as a background performer/musician (sidelining) in film and television. I've met so many fun and interesting people in different fields of the industry while being an extra on set! I also love the classic looks like the 1940s and Steampunk. If you would like to hear playing samples or some of my compositions, please feel free to check out my website. www.maecrosby.com. Cheers!

Unique traits: I must have a familiar looking face because everyone thinks that they recognize me from somewhere! lol. I'm often told I look Irish or Scottish. I play musical instruments - I have several I can convincingly hold but I play oboe and English horn professionally. I would easily fit into any orchestra setting. I like the classic looks like the 1940s but I'm often asked to be background for East Coast or Mid West looks.
