Summary

As an accomplished musical theatre actor, singer, and composer/songwriter, I have devoted my life to this industry and am always looking for ways to develop. I have two music degrees (music theatre and music education) that have provided me with extensive knowledge about the history of music, technical aspects of music, and performance. My next steps are to have a complete picture of the industry which includes: music publishing, licensing, and song placement. I am a hardworking and dedicated person that learns rapidly and can adapt to any situation. Oh yeah, I can have a good time too!
