Too much time has passed by without an update here - it's been a busy year! Life is good - I'm a newlywed and instead of a wedding reception we had a fabulous benefit concert to help renovate the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival's historic Music Shed. (see select photos)

Last summer was my 8th season as composer/arranger at the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach, CA. While finishing that I got a call from the Boston Pops to orchestrate a medley of songs for the band Little Big Town for their 4th of July CBS broadcast.

Later that month I was the supervising orchestrator for From Broadway With Love: Orlando - a star-studded tribute and fundraiser for the Pulse nightclub tragedy. I wish we didn't have to do these...

I co-produced a very fun album for my friend David Mallamud that features a great lineup of singers including Sierra Boggess, Amick Byram, Christiane Noll, Janet Dacal, Morgan James, Cathie Ryan and Constantine Maroulis among others. It's on Broadway Records.

I'm currently reorchestrating (with composer Stephen Flaherty's blessing) the musical Ragtime for the Ford's Theatre's - look for it next spring! I've also begun a big, new, SECRET project... I'll keep you posted!

I'm thankful for the my family, friends, colleagues and the musical opportunities that find their way to me.
