I’m a pianist, composer, and educator from Brooklyn, NY. I have performed at several noteworthy festivals including The Capetown Jazz Festival, The Montreux Jazz Festival, SXSW, Lolapalooza, and Coachella. I have also worked with various artists including Jean Grae, Pharoahe Monch, and Solange Knowles.
I compose music and create sound design for independent films, theatrical works, museum installations and podcasts.
I have a quirky sensibility and I work well with others. With me on your creative team you get an experienced professional who can compose music, create sound design, arrange music, record and mix projects, and consistently meet deadlines.
