  • Biography

    Hello! I'm a collaborative pianist, theatre musician, and music director in the Bay Area. I have music directed local productions of The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Flower Drum Song, Peter and the Starcatcher, A Christmas Story: the Musical, and Bullets Over Broadway, and served as MD for Disenchanted! in its San Diego premiere. I play keyboard in many pit orchestras throughout the Peninsula and South Bay.

    I am currently the staff accompanist for Cantabile Youth Singers and Los Altos High School choirs, and accompanist and vocal coach for Leigh High School's musical theater program. I have also accompanied for San Jose State University and California Regional and All-State Honor Choirs. In addition, I freelance as a collaborative pianist for student vocalists and instrumentalists.
