I joined Local 802 because I wanted to be a part of a larger arts community and have access to a supportive network of talented musicians. I have decided to dedicate my career to both music and theatre, and I’ve taken several different paths since coming to New York. I recently stepped down from my position as the program administrator for the NYU Steinhardt vocal performance program to pursue a career as a freelance pianist and music director. Since leaving NYU, I’ve worked for several theatres and organizations as well as multiple youth theatres and training programs. My favorite recent gig was at Transcendence Theatre Company in Sonoma, California, where I music directed their “Fantastical Family Night.” Transcendence has such an incredible community of talented individuals and loving sponsors and I’ve had a great time making music there for the past four years. I’m so excited to serve as music supervisor for their upcoming summer season. I attended the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music and earned my degree in music education for piano and voice. I focused mostly on musical theatre and ended up music directing all throughout college. I live for contemporary grooves and am discovering my love for pop/rock-infused musicals and repertoire. Music makes me alive and I get so excited about it. I’m constantly geeking out about castings, new musicals, cast recordings, music directors, and Instagram takeovers by my favorite musical theatre stars and creative teams. I’m looking to learn more and serve this community of music, theatre, and art as best as I can.
