I've never worked with Jeanine Tesori, but I have gotten to work with some wonderful composers and many other inspiring people.


I'm from Rochester, NY, but I've lived in Atlanta long enough to miss snow. My mother tap danced on the radio. My father invented a machine to individually wrap cheese.

I went from a degree in sculpture to a career in advertising. When I started writing in other people’s voices, I finally found my own.
