I wrote the score for the evening-length, beautiful hybrid theatre/puppetry/multimedia play for adults entitled Home and written by writers/directors/puppetry designers Tanya Khordoc & Barry Weil of Evolve Puppets and a 1st-rate creative team of designers and actors. Our production team includes Tanya & Barry, associate director/movement coordinator Lake Simons (Lincoln Center’s WAR HORSE), projection designer Jared Mezzocchi (Obie and Lucille Lortel winner, VIETGONE), set designer Tom Lee (SHANK’S MARE), lighting designer Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew (Drama Desk nominee, KPOP), costume designer SL Riffle (Lyric Opera of Chicago), and me. Home premiered in New York City at The Tank NYC (312 West 36th Street, New York, NY 10018) between May 30th-June 2nd, 2019.

My score for the launch video for the hot internet startup Wine Ring! Wine Ring has major math under the hood that makes choosing wines easy. It’s all based on what you like, not ratings, but your preferences. I had a blast working with co-founders Pam Dillon and Andrew Sussman. Oh, that’s the company Musical ID I created for them at the beginning and end too!
