“I’m a composer, orchestrator, electronic music programmer, and somewhat apologetic nerd. I work on big, splashy Broadway musicals like Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, but try to stay grounded with lots of big ol’ flops in between. I also attended Carnegie Mellon University, where I studied music composition and vocal performance, and stole Shannon’s poetry to set to music. In case it’s not obvious, I write the music on Song Salad. “
