I rejoined the union after moving back to New York to continue to network further and begin taking more professional gigs. My goal is to work as a theatrical musical director with the ultimate dream being to open a show on Broadway as the musical director/conductor. Recently I had the opportunity to music direct a production of “American Idiot.” Crafting the singers into giving a true-to-genre rock sound was a pleasure and a challenge. When I did a production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” I re-orchestrated and rearranged the music to fit in a small space as well as to accentuate some of the talents in the cast. Hearing the strings play the finale for the first time was a revelatory experience. There is nothing like hearing other musicians playing the notes you put down on the page. My principal instruments include piano, drums, synthesizers and bass guitar.
