Currently, I am an Education Specialist in the TIPS Education Center at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. I create and edit training and educational videos that include voice-overs and original music.
I worked with Alley Theatre as a Teaching Artist and Sound Designer for four years. During the pandemic, The Alley’s Education and Community Engagement Department made a rigorous pivot to offering online content for home-schoolers. I was promoted to Curriculum & Video Content Specialist and helped transform the department, from the ground-up, into a prolific production house of educational content for students, teachers, and the community. I wrote, co-wrote, and edited about 50 educational videos, Including editing and designing the award-winning Oskar show.
Before working full-time with Alley Theatre, I enjoyed a diverse background in freelance media creation, theatre, and music. I have produced original music for theatres (Utah Shakespeare Festival, Alley Theatre, The Cape Playhouse, Florida Studio Theatre, Passage Theatre); music for web sitcoms (Submissions Only, Mr. Roesti and Friends); psych-pop records under my moniker, The Perfectly Violent Dream. Collaborations: Anton Fig (drummer for David Letterman’s CBS Orchestra house band), Christian Nesmith (The Monkees tour band), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Jellyfish, Air, Beck), Secret Friend, Linus of Hollywood, Vinnie Zummo (Joe Jackson’s tour guitarist) and Jill Sobule. I was also a professional regional theatre actor in my 20s (Actor’s Equity Association) and have been a contributor for NPR’s The Next Big Thing.
