Hello! I'm a professional producer, songwriter, and composer in Woodland Hills. I work with a wide array of artists in a multitude of genres, from indie rock to soul to children's music. As a singer-songwriter, I have toured internationally and had my music played on radio nationwide placed in film and TV.

I've been teaching and tutoring since I myself was a high school student in the late 1980s. I've taught music to toddlers, teens, adults, and even senior citizens. I've taught at after-school programs, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, music festivals, and at the undergraduate and graduate level at UCLA where I taught Musicianship, Theory, and Music Technology (including Pro Tools and Logic).

I have a PhD in Music Composition from UCLA. I've been a professional composer since the early '90s. I've scored soundtracks for the Discovery Channel and National Geographic, my musical, "Election Day," was produced at an off-Broadway theater in NYC, and I've composed numerous works for orchestra, concert band, and chamber groups.

For ten summers, I served as Head of Composition and Theory at the American Festival for the Arts, a high school summer conservatory in Houston.

I love learning, and the more I teach, the more I learn. I love imparting knowledge to those who seek it, and I enjoy coaching and encouraging students to discover their true potential.

As a composer, songwriter, producer, and performer, I have 26 years of professional experience in music. I've also been a music educator since the 1980s.
