My work, from original songwriting to creative arrangements

My primary long-term pursuit is writing and composing for musical theatre. Selections below include Facades, a folk musical with original book, music, & lyrics—as well as excerpts from upcoming projects in development.

I have been writing standalone songs for 14 years; most of them about particular events or themes, too singular for a larger work, but too great to cover as part of a compilation. These songs are passion projects, rarely published commercially, but I am happy to share them upon request.

I have been a music arranger for 10 years. The majority of my experience is in a cappella at NYU, where I produced over 14 creative arrangements for NYU's Mass Transit, as a senior arranger and music director.
