Emotions of any kind can be evoked by melody and rhythm; therefore music has the power to form character.
Aristotle (384-322 BC)
I am a sound designer and composer for theater; it is what I always wanted to do, and the only thing that I have ever done. I simply love the creative possibilities that sound and music offer in theatrical design.
What have I worked on lately/what am I working on?
The American premier of Nick Dear’s Frankenstein at the Denver Center, next up is The First Noel at the Apollo!! Yep, that Apollo. Then on to writing music for Disgraced, also at the Denver Center. In between all of that, a couple of new book offers are hanging out there - I’m working on them.
I also happen to be the head of the sound design program at Penn State. If that’s how you ended up here, please reach out to me to find out about the program and studying sound design.
