Works

There are few things more exhilarating than watching a new piece of music come to life, be that through a close collaboration with a friend or through the commissioning process. Thanks for taking the time to see what I've been creating! 

 

Recordings and videos are linked below. If you're interested in purchasing a score or bringing something totally new into the world, I'd love to hear from you via email.
