I began playing music at the age of 14 and have been singing and/or playing some combination of guitar, bass, and drums in various bands ever since. As a company member at American Shakespeare Center, I was a principle member of the house band and helped to craft pre-show entertainments and in-show musical moments. In a completely different vein, I also had the pleasure of voicing the character of "Rhythm" on the Rock-a-Baby debut album, "It's a Musical World". This Rhode Island-based organization brings music to toddlers in several different cities. I have interest in many different styles of music—from punk to bluegrass and beyond—and I continue to write songs and music for use both on and off the stage.
