    About Me

I trained as an actor-musician at Rose Bruford College, and work as a Music Director, Performer, Composer, Sound Designer and Educator.


As a performer, I am a keyboard based musician, playing piano and accordion, although I can turn my hand to other instruments as well. I am also experienced playing piano for auditions. Software I usually find myself working with includes MainStage, Qlab, Logic, Sibelius.
