About
Looking for a lyricist? I write primarily for musical theatre and opera, and actively seek collaborations with composers/producers working across genres—pop, R&B, alternative anything, hip-hop, classical crossover... I have the utmost respect for composers and am equally adept at lyrics-first or melody-first collaborations. BMI/DG. Videos above, website below.

hello. i was drawn to your background. i grew up in new york and was a musical theater geek ( fan , not performer )
although most of my musical heroes are rock/pop artists i am an enormous fan of stephen sondheim. just watched into the woods for the umpteenth time last night. my writing is much more pop oriented , like the blues, like old cabaret type music. id love to see if theres something i could do with your lyrics

i write primarily on guitar but do have a piano, bass, and 12 string to add flavor
