Marmalade cat on my lap,
Sipping ginger tea,
Tip, tip, tapping my feet
To the distant sound of the sea.
Hello beautiful people,
I love to find the music and joy in daily life in this electric city. I'm a composer/performer/teacher who recently graduated from NYU's Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program. I'm currently re-writing a musical about a mayor turning into a toucan as well as writing a kids' gardening themed album. (I just finished up a song about kale. Any kale lovers out there?)
I teach songwriting to kids privately and at a music school, where I lead kids' rock bands. (Yep, I'm basically Jack Black :)
Besides cooking up music, I'm very into cooking delectable dishes with friends and I love dancing. (I occasionally do both at the same time.) I often go to live music shows (particularly Barbes in Park Slope - yeah Slavic Soul Party!) and I participate in a weekly improv dance class. I also practice yoga on a regular basis.
I'm passionate about fighting for justice as well. I worked for 6 years as a community organizer in Bushwick fighting for better housing conditions and immigrants' rights. Pa'lante! Si se puede!
