My goal as an artist is to use sound as a gateway to make art accessible to the masses. Humans have a natural sense of music and rhythm, which I utilize to draw audiences into a specific text, work, or other creative project.



My most recent work (sound design) was seen at NYTW in its production of What The Constitution Means To Me (written by Heidi Schreck | directed by Oliver Butler).
