About
Looking for a lyricist? I write primarily for musical theatre and opera, but actively seek collaborations with composers/producers working across genres—pop, jazz, R&B, alternative, secular gospel, 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.
