He majored in English at the University of Virginia (where he was an Echols Scholar) and later served as an intern in the White House before launching his entertainment career in talent and development at MTV and VH1.

He followed that experience as one of the original segment producers for the upstart Rosie O'Donnell Show, one of daytime television's most popular recent hits. Changing arenas, he segued into the motion picture world as a development executive for the late filmmaker Ted Demme (Blow) and producer Joel Stillerman before joining Walden Media, where he developed and oversaw such film projects as the upcoming I Am David, the big-screen adaptation of Anne Holm's acclaimed novel North to Freedom. During his tenure with Walden under Cary Granat, Moore also helped obtain and develop such forthcoming Walden projects as The Giver, Bridge to Terabithia and Manhunt.

A diehard fan of children's literature, Moore's first novel, Hero, the first of a fantasy series about a group of modern-day superheroes, will be published by Hyperion.
