At the tender age of 3, I ripped open a cardboard box with a plastic toy screwdriver to get at the ukulele within.  Throughout the next 29 years of my life, I have worked towards that same goal: unleashing sounds with whatever tools are available.

I have searched for sounds as bassist in Sun Hat, School for Robots, EXH4LER, A bit Much, the Slurred Murrays, Paraffin Section, the Musical Theatre and the Sinbusters, as drummer in Abernathy and Pyotr and as a multi-instrumentalist in Verre.  I have also composed and performed with the UMass Lowell Contemporary Electronic Ensemble.  The 11:11 Theatre and Happy Medium Theatre Companies have also commissioned me to compose music.  I most recently signed on to compose the soundtrack for the short film Lost Child, directed by Steve Brown.

I studied music education at UMass Lowell, where I received a bachelor of music studies in 2005 and a master of music teaching in 2007.  I currently teach at Mastery Charter - Pickett Campus in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia.  I previously taught at Avon Middle-High School in Avon, MA.
