I've been a musician for over 15 years. My favorite instruments are the Piano, Trombone, and Ukulele. 

The best sound designs often go unnoticed.

One of my mantras, "Silence is a Choice," helps me focus on pieces in their entirety. Even if sound is absent, every moment can be focused to propel the story.


I'm originally from Buffalo, NY.  That's where I was drawn into theatre while attending undergrad. I came to D.C. for graduate studies at UMD, College Park in 2010, where I discovered how much I love shaping audience's emotion through sounds and music.
