I spent decades on stages, in front of cameras, in rehearsal studios and behind microphones, acting, performing and telling stories. Then an awesome director and good friend asked me to write some music for a production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and everything changed...
A composer/writer who speaks the language of directors and actors. Music and song for theater and film must first and foremost support the story we're telling.
I love performing. A lot. But maybe I love writing more. Music and song have the power to create mood and environment, to reveal hidden truths and emotions, to transform a scene, to lift the pace and change the rhythm of a moving image. Harnessing the twelve tone scaly beast of music and putting it to work in the service of our stories is a joy, a privilege, a calling. And of course, it's the reason you're here. Writing samples for theater and film are accessible on these webpages. Enjoy!
