I’m a musician who specializes in film composing from NJ. I also have experience in a cappella arranging, classical composing, and songwriting. I teach piano lessons and perform on piano and guitar.

I’m 25 and passionate about film composition. Eager to expand my portfolio, I’m a fast learner & hard worker who believes in attention to detail and creating innovative music pushing the norms of all genres and mediums of music! I’ve worked on several short film projects, filmmaker demo reels, local TV music, arranged for numerous college a cappella groups, and have released two eps and one single available on all music platforms.
