Kitay's entree into film scoring began at age 27 with Look Who's Talking, the first of what would become many successful collaborations with director Amy Heckerling. While his subsequent credits, Clueless, Scary Movie, and the now infamous Dude Where's My Car? firmly established him in the teen genre, Kitay had other plans for his future, scoring both Ghost World and Bad Santa for director Terry Zwigoff, as well as a slew of other independent films for other innovative directors. He is also working on his own concert music to be performed in 2005.
Among other honors, Kitay has received four prestigious BMI awards, several for his scores for the hit TV series Mad About You. In addition to scoring, he has recently produced records for such artists as The Boxing Ghandis, Sussanah Hoffs (The Bangles) and David Baerwald. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two daughters.
Upcoming films projects include Elvis Has Left The Building (Joel Zwick), Art School Confidential (Terry Zwigoff), Brand New Wonderful (Danny Liener), Ice Harvest (Harold Ramis) and Afterlife (Amy Heckerling).
