Tim Westergren founded Pandora in January 2000 and now serves as its Chief Strategy Officer. A jazz trained pianist and lifelong musician, Tim has worn many hats as a feature film composer, record producer, audio engineer, and live performer.
Tim received his B.A. from Stanford University, where he studied music theory, computer acoustics and recording technology. His years as a working musician have imbued him with a great passion for helping talented emerging artists connect with new fans.
