          I am a sound designer and engineer based in New York City specializing in theatre, concerts, and events. 

          My lifelong passion for music and performance began with playing the drums and running my own mobile DJ business. I completed my BFA at the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama in 2019, where I designed sound for Cabaret. After graduating, I travelled to the 2019 Prague Quadrennial where I was a Featured Designer in the Emerging/Student Exhibition for my design from Alkestis. Last winter, I designed Pass Over at Luna Stage in West Orange, New Jersey. I currently produce Break A Leg!, a podcast about disabilities in the arts, and provide freelance voice-over narration. As a designer I am drawn to creating immersive experiences that engage and uplift audiences. I am also an advocate for sustainable practices in the arts and beyond.
