MUSIC DIRECTOR

I have worked as a Music Director both in Canada and Australia and also been involved in many shows as vocal/repertoire coach, pit musician, and rehearsal pianist.

In the summer of 2017 I was MD and pianist for the musical "Seeking Refuge" by Rick Jones - at the Toronto Fringe Festival with Thick and Thin Theatre company which made NOW Magazine's lists of "Outstanding Productions" as well as "Outstanding Ensemble"

That same summer I worked with teenagers in the "The Creation Lab" program at the Randolph Academy Kid's Program - during which I helped devise, compose, rehearse and perform a musical in 9 days - resulting in "Between The Lies" and "Up and Away"

In January 2017 I was pianist for The Broadway Concert Series "Songs from "Les Miserables and Miss Saigon" featuring Ma-Anne Dionisio, Jay Davis, David Silvestri, Gabi Epstein, Fran Anton-Harwart, and Gordon McLaren

In the summer of 2016 I was MD and pianist for the Toronto Fringe festival show "Echoes - A New Musical" which was nominated as NOW Magazine's "Pick of the Fringe" and listed as one of their "Outstanding Ensembles"

In 2016 I was also MD for "FATE CITY" - also a "Creation Lab" project through the Randolph Academy's Kids program

In the fall and winter of 2015 I was MD and pianist for a new version of PETER PAN with Yellow Door Theatre in Niagara on the Lake.

In the summer of 2014 I was MD and pianist with the wonderful ANNE AND GILBERT at the Guild Theatre in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

In January 2014 I opened the new Canadian musical KILLER BUSINESS - THE MUSICAL, as part of the Next Stage Festival. This show was a big success - the second highest grossing show in the seven year history of the Festival.
