His first television work was scoring the NBC television movie A Mom for Christmas, with John Farrar. Besides Star Trek, he also did sound work on films such as the Eddie Murphy 1992 comedy Boomerang, the 1992 mystery The Public Eye (starring Richard Riehle), and the acclaimed 1995 thriller Se7en (featuring Reg E. Cathey, Leland Orser, and Daniel Zacapa).
As a composer, Callery is best known for his work on the hit FOX series 24. He has won two Emmy Awards in Outstanding Music Composition for a Series for his work on this series, in addition to three additional Emmy nominations.
