WHO TF R U?

I create new work in music, theater and the in-between.  Most recently, I co-wrote/composed/directed musical podcast 36 Questions with my writing partner Chris Littler. It stars Jonathan Groff and Jessie Shelton, and was produced by Two-Up Productions. I'm also 1/5 of nerd-rock group Chamber Band, and together we've made three albums and adventured on three national tours. In the world of theater, I've had the joy of working with Dave Malloy, Heather Christian, The Bengsons, Mark Bennett, and César Alvarez. I've also performed at Rough Trade, Joe's Pub, Ars Nova, The Knitting Factory, and SPACE on Ryder Farm. I'm a member of Electric Eye Ensemble, The Daughters Collective, and The Story Pirates. I attended Duke Ellington School of the Arts and Sarah Lawrence College.

Currently, I'm in the throes of making my debut album, Every Feeling I've Ever Felt. And this year, Chris and I are Resident Artists in Ars Nova's Maker's Lab, where we're writing a musical thriller comedy called Monster Hit.
