I’m a classically-trained composer, pianist, and countertenor; I additionally work as a music director and vocal coach. I hold a Bachelor of Music (Composition) from the University of Tulsa (2009) and a Master of Fine Arts (Musical Theater Writing) from New York University (2012).
I’m available for performance, music direction, commissions, collaborations, and vocal coaching.
I wrote the music for Fucking Identical Twins (book and lyrics by Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson), which ran at Upright Citizens Brigade in New York and Los Angeles for a year and a half before being optioned for feature film adaptation by 20th Century Fox/Chernin Entertainment.
My thesis musical, Class (book and lyrics by Maria Alexandria Beech), was a finalist for the National Musical Theater Conference at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center (Waterford, CT) in 2017. The piece previously enjoyed a summer workshop residency at Hope Summer Repertory Theatre (Holland, MI) in 2014.
I scored Maria Alexandria Beech’s scripted comedy, Telemamas, in 2017; it’s currently undergoing development at Wise Entertainment.

La Hora Perdida: Songs for Renaud, my queer breakup song cycle, was workshopped in the summer of 2013 at GLOW Lyric Theatre (Greenville, SC).
My songs have been featured in William Finn’s Songs by Ridiculously Talented Composers and Lyricists You Probably Don’t Know, But Should… at Barrington Stage Company (Pittsfield, MA).

An alumnus of C4: The Choral Composer-Conductor Collective and former alto sub for St. Thomas Choir of Men and Boys, I sang as a finalist candidate for Chanticleer (San Francisco, CA) in the spring of 2017. In 2019, I appeared as a featured soloist alongside Glenn Close, Cynthia Erivo, and many others in John Cameron Mitchell’s musical podcast, Anthem: Homunculus.

Music Direction & Vocal Coaching
I have music-directed dozens of developmental readings of new musicals, including Atina, Evil Queen of the Galaxy (Fredericia Teater, 2016; Alan Menken, composer; Søren Møller, producer) alongside Mr. Menken himself, Jasper in Deadland (Prospect Theater Company, 2014; Ryan Scott Oliver, composer; Brandon Ivie, director), and Nighttime Traffic (2012; Alex Wyse, composer; Marshall Pailet, director). I was a rehearsal pianist for Michael R. Jackson’s sold-out run of A Strange Loop at Playwrights Horizons; this fall, I’m back at Playwrights serving as associate music director for the workshop of Michael Friedman’s Unknown Soldier directed by Trip Cullman.
I was a vocal coach and the final-round accompanist for the National High School Musical Theater Awards (a.k.a. The Jimmy Awards) in 2012 at the Minskoff Theatre, where my accompaniment work was praised by Len Cariou, the actor who originated the role of Sweeney Todd.
Since 2015, I have served as the resident creative music director of Raquel Cion’s one-woman David Bowie cabaret, Me and Mr. Jones: My Intimate Relationship with David Bowie (Cynthia Cahill, director).
