Los Angeles, CA, USA


Longtime music director, composer and lyricist in the theatre, I was fortunate to work on some fantastic productions with some of the best playwrights and directors of my generation. I also worked on some excellent films and TV shows. I took a break from that career for a period of time to run a visual arts organization. Unable to stay away, I've recently come back to theatre work as a playwright. I discovered in playwriting some of the musical composition I'd previously aspired to. A play script depends, wonderfully, on the ear. I've had a few short plays produced in the past couple of years, and a workshop of a longer work. My next goal is to get a full-length play produced.
