Meneghin also toured with Michael Bublé and Josh Groban.
In 2008, Meneghin was hired as the music producer for the MTV docudrama, Taking the Stage, which ran for two seasons.
While working on Taking the Stage, Meneghin met and became friends with Laura Webb. After Webb was tapped to be Teen Wolf's Music Supervisor, she asked Meneghin to put together a reel of his work for Executive Producer Jeff Davis.[]
The two hit it off and have worked closely developing a "sonic palette" for the show.
Meneghin describes Teen Wolf as the favorite project of his career to date, "Jeff Davis is one of the most creative people I’ve ever met, but he has a work ethic that is second to none. He also treats people well and really respects the work of everyone on the show. That’s a very rare quality, and it makes for an environment where people work very hard to create something new and worthwhile."[]
