  • She/Her
  • Biography

    I am a classically trained pianist who is well versed in improvisation. I’ve music directed and conducted everything from melodramas played on tack pianos to Benjamin Britten operas. My emphasis in grad school was collaborative piano. I also studied voice and vocal pathology. As a singer myself, I feel very confident when teaching vocals to ensembles and soloists. Currently, I have been doing most of my work music directing musicals in the regional circuit.

    Select Regional Theater Crédits: The Who’s Tommy (Denver Center for the Performing Arts), Sweeney Todd (Asolo Rep), Hair! (The Old Globe), Cinderella (Alabama Shakespeare Festival)

    Check out my website for a full resume and CV!

    I am currently working on the new musical Rattlesnake Kate at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. I have been with the project since conception. The composer and I work extremely close together and I have been integral in the development. It started with her album" Rattlesnake" which I transcribed and then fleshed out harmonies, underscoring and accompaniment patterns for which are now being further expanded.

    I am quick on my feet, I respond well to high stress situations and can re-harmonize, transpose and restructure on the spot.

    Besides musical theater, I have worked with a lot of children’s theater companies and church choirs.

    I am also great at reducing orchestrations for smaller ensembles.

    Just as comfortable piano conducting as well as conducting with a baton.

    I’m looking to get more into vocal arranging and orchestration versus just musical direction.

    I also taught at the University of Northern Colorado for 4 years in the musical theater department. My CV on my website has the full details.
