I love collaborating and working with people to get what's in their head to be what is in the production. My band, The Nineteen Twenty just released our first album which we wrote, produce, and recorded entirely on Zoom. In my time working in theatre I worked with Cyndi Lauper, Huey Lewis, The Avett Brothers, and Lamont Dozier.
