Joining Constantine Maroulis and returning to NYMF
I have two other projects that I wanted to let you know about - first, I’m excited to be joining the touring band for American Idol and Broadway star Constantine Maroulis. He has a new record coming out soon and a handful of tour dates including headlining spots in DC and New York (at Highline Ballroom) coming out. Be on the lookout for his new music as well as additional concert dates in the coming year.
Also, I’m teaming up again with composer Adam Spiegel (who wrote the score for the award-winning musical Cloned! at the New York Musical Festival aka NYMF two years ago, for which I was associate music director). I’ll be playing piano for Adam’s new show, a children’s musical called Camp Rolling Hills which will play at this year’s NYMF. We have only six performances and tickets are going fast, so if you have children (or are just a child at heart) I hope you’ll check out the show.

Live videos - Live from the Living Room
I've got two live videos from what ended up being my last gig at The Living Room before this beloved NY institution closed its doors. Enjoy a rocked up version of "New Amsterdam" as well as "I Met A Girl", a tune from my Jukebox EP that I hadn't played in years.
Working as a professional musician, I offer a number of services including vocal accompaniment, transcriptions, arranging and piano lessons. My new Professional Services page includes details on some of the various types of work I can offer as a collaborator or as a for-hire pro.
Previously, this information was available on a separate website, westendmusicnyc.com. I've decided to migrate all of the information from West End Music over to this site, making it 'one-stop-shopping' for all fo my various musical endeavors.
