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 my music at Rough Trade, Ars Nova, The Knitting Factory, The Tank, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Pete’s Candy Store, and many a Sofar show. This past year, I had the sheer pleasure of embarking upon the Rhinebeck Writers Retreat and a residency at SPACE on Ryder Farm. I'm a member of The Daughters Collective and The Story Pirates. Also - a proud alum of Duke Ellington School of the Arts and Sarah Lawrence College.

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