Composer / Songwriter

Putting words & music on paper has been a part of my regular regime as a musical artist for my entire life.  When productions need music, it’s my intent to put my best efforts forward towards creating just the right music to fit the artist and the mood. Many times that includes composing music specifically for productions which I’ve done in genres from jazz to R&B.  My original compositions have been featured in TV shows including Boss, Proven Innocent and Empire, including “The  Boss Kane Tango” for Boss, “Chicago Tonight” for Proven Innocent and “The Lucious Shuffle” for Empire.  I’ve also collaborated on songwriting with the wonderfully gifted hit-maker Victoria Shaw, famous for her work with Garth Brooks and Lady Antebellum. Whether you need original music to create the mood or songs to tell the story, I’ll craft the music to create the magic.  Currently I’m working on crafting an original stage musical with composer Scott Jurek that will feature the life, times and era of the John F. Kennedy administration (1960 – 1963).
