Once upon a time there was a kid with a dream . . . a dream to be an astronaut. Or maybe a math teacher. Or a marine biologist. Some dreams don’t come true, but it turns out that even though you can’t always get what you want, you just might find you get what you need. A childhood heavily steeped equally in rock and roll, folk, classical, jazz, and movie musicals (thanks to mom and dad!) helped to set me on the twisted path that lead me to where I am today; a music director, multi-instrumentalist and educator.
I am at various times: a music director for regional, collegiate, high school and middle school productions; a keyboardist/accompanist for cabarets, recitals, and auditions; a musician in rock bands, jazz ensembles, and pit orchestras; a songwriter and composer; a theatre camp instructor; a keyboard programmer; a sound engineer/consultant; a director; an actor and on-stage performer.
