As Creative Director and founding partner of Big Yellow Duck, Stuart's credit and client list over the past twenty years speaks for itself. After attending Berklee School of Music, Stuart brought his passion for music to New York and became the Musical Director at the Gusto House working with then unknowns Blue Man Group, John Leguizamo, and They Might be Giants. Stuart soon found that the boundaries of the medium were endless and his interest grew to include sound for film.

In 1986, Stuart opened his own small studio, Red Dog Music, at 503 Broadway in downtown Manhattan, providing original music and sound design for the independent film community. The good word got out as TV and advertising clients started knocking on his door and Red Dog expanded to a 3700-foot, four studio facility. Stuart became a mnemonic guru, creating branding musical motifs for ABC, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Discovery. He also worked on ad campaigns for Coca-Cola, Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, and United Airlines amongst others.

In 2000 Stuart moved his studio to midtown Manhattan to concentrate on composing for long form cartoons. He currently has four shows on air- Johnny and the Sprites, Stanley, and Jojo's Circus for the Disney Channel, as well as Kenny the Shark for Discovery Kids. Aside from the episodic work, Stuart remains busy working on various other projects for Playhouse Disney, Noggin, Sesame Workshop and Fisher Price.

"There is nothing I'd rather do than what I'm doing right now. I have been in this business for twenty years and I feel as juiced about the next project as I did about the first."
