Thinking of You

Know Me Better

Written for Netflix film "Speech and Debate." Produced and mixed by Justin Thorne.

The first professional music writing I did was at the age of 19 in Chicago when I was hired to write music and lyrics for a musical called "Eyes and Ears." After studying singing/songwriting and special education at Columbia College Chicago, I moved to Los Angeles to star in a production of "Spring Awakening" that included the use of American Sign Language. After a year of working on that show, it was moved to New York in 2015 where I made my Broadway debut as a leading man. From that project, I was cast as a lead in a Netflix film called "Speech and Debate" and an ABC mini series called "When We Rise." Becoming an actor was never something I set out to do. Nevertheless, that is what I became. However, my passion and interested in writing music remained. Through my acting success, I've been able to grow as an artist. I've written songs for film and television and am currently in production for a set of 3 albums I've written. At the end of the day, my greatest passion is writing music be it piano instrumental, jazz vocals, lyrics to music, musical theater pieces, pop ballads, etc. I find joy and artistic fulfillment in not only lending music to people or projects that need it, but also in collaborating with someone to get that music just right.
