Biography

I have always loved a good story. As a performing artist, I aim to communicate authentic stories through music and theatre. Originally from Ohio, I graduated with a BA in Piano Performance from Cedarville University and received my Masters degree in Music Direction for Theatre from Arizona State University.

My work as a collaborative pianist, music director, and choreographer for theatrical productions have incorporated elements from the musical theatre canon, both classic and contemporary, as well as the classical music repertoire, culminating in well-rounded artistic experiences. I have worked in developing new works at various workshops such as the Phoenix Theatre New Works Festival. I have also served as a music director for Norwegian Cruise Lines, most recently with the Norwegian Breakaway’s productions of SIX the Musical and Burn the Floor.

Other recent productions include Footloose, A Gentlemen's Guide to Love & Murder, Kiss Me, Kate!, Musical of Musicals (The Musical!), and A New Brain.

I have served on music staff at Norwegian Cruise Lines, The Phoenix Theatre Company, Wright State University, Cedarville University, Dayton Live, and College Light Opera Company. I was awarded an AriZoni Award for my music direction of A New Brain at ASU in 2018. Feel free to reach out to me at [email protected] or visit me on Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube!
