Need a Producer? Arranger? Orchestrator? Someone who really knows how to produce inventive high quality tracks in a short amount of time? Have a melody and need it fleshed out in a certain style? Look no further...30 years in music and have been BIlly Porter’s MD for 17+ years. Over 350 VST instruments and 370 effect plugins. All genres welcome!

I am a 30 year veteran keyboard player (all types of instruments) with vast experience in arranging, orchestrating and music production. I’ve been a conductor for 6 Bway shows, and have worked with many artists as their Music Director/arranger. Have been BIlly Porter’s M.D. for 17+ years and done 3 albums with him, specifically “At The Corner Of Broadway & Soul”, “Billy’s Back On Broadway”, “The Soul of Richard Rodgers”. Other recordings include Bobby Conte Thornton’s “Along The Way”, Tituss Burgess’s “St. Tituss”, Original Broadway Cast Recordings of “Brooklyn”, “The Wedding Singer”, “Legally Blonde”, “Honeymoon In Vegas”, “Prince Of Broadway” and the revival recording of Jason Robert Brown’s “Songs For A New World” from 2018. I've worked with artists as diverse as Tituss Burgess, India.Arie, Ledisi, Deborah Cox and Jojo, as well as many Broadway luminaries too numerous to list here.

Do you need solid quality tracks turned over in a short amount of time? What about charts to go with those tracks? How about any genre of keys from Jazz to gospel to R&B to country to rock to pop to EDM to Hip-hop to Broadway? Orchestrations for a bigger session? Arrangements that are tailor made for YOU? Then look no further. Contact me and let’s get to work!
