Having arranged and composed music for everything from virtuosic solo piano to pop piano, full length music theater productions to film and media, string ensemble (classical and pop), full orchestra (classical and pop), and more, I am at home arranging and composing music for any instrumentation to distribute and perform on any stage or in any medium. I’ve worked for 15 years with local musicians as well as remotely with studios and musicians across the United States as well as in Europe. I also run a recording company specializing in tracking, editing, and mixing. Most of my notable engineering work is in the classical genre for artists such as: The Phoenix Symphony, The All Star Brass, The Millennial Choirs and Orchestras.
