COMPOSER/SOUND DESIGNER

In addition to performing, I delight in telling a story through sound – weaving in elements that help establish mood and awaken the senses… I particularly enjoy working with natural elements (wind rustling plants, storms, birdsong, etc.), some of which I’ve attempted to recreate in live performances, with Foley effects, and using pre-recorded loops in recordings.

Excerpt from the opening scene of Twelfth Night:

I have composed and sound designed for live productions of Shakespeare and contemporary works, winning Aubrey and Blue Ribbon awards (San Diego) for Much Ado About Nothing (sound design, traditional Renaissance setting) and a Blue Ribbon award, Aubrey nomination, for A Midsummer Night’s Dream (original music and sound design). I frequently act as musical director and/or coach, especially for productions for which I write or design.

I would be honored to provide my original works for your performance; please contact me if you’re interested in working together!

I have also recorded a few of my original songs. If you’re a lyricist interested in collaborating, please let me know 🙂

I have made many arrangements of pre-composed music (below is one of my favorites). Upcoming projects include popular music from the late 1800s-early 1900s, Americana/folk songs, and children’s lullabies. Stay tuned for those!

I regularly make audio and video recordings and have produced work for other artists. If you’re interested in working with me on your own recording, please send me a message!

Additionally, if you’re interested in collaborating on a performance or recording as a fellow musician or artist, I’d love to work together!
