Music: Composer or Arranger

About this creative

I am a graduate composer, arranger, and songwriter with years of professional experience.

As a composer, I've written for chamber ensembles to full symphony orchestra. I've also composed for choir, musical theater, and film. My music is approachable, often (though not always) melodic, and with a touch of the dramatic. Samples of my work can be found on my website.

As an arranger, I've written over 150 arrangements for ensembles of all sizes in the classical, jazz, pop/rock, and musical theater genres, among others. I can deliver a professional-quality arrangement in a very short amount of time for any type of ensemble. Samples are available upon request.

I am also a songwriter, and accept commissions to write, record, and have performed custom songs for those with a powerful message to share... or who want to surprise a loved one! (Samples coming soon--I am working on producing some of my songs.)

In addition to composing and arranging, I stay active as a freelance trumpet player and bandleader. I've put a number of jazz ensembles together for private events.
