As a professional church musician since 1993, I focus on vibrant congregational song. I have served large, medium and small congregations in both urban and suburban settings across several denominations as choir director, organist, pianist, and liturgy planner. Much of my work has occurred within multicultural, liturgical worshipping communities, including my current work as Director of Music Ministries & Organist at Advent Lutheran Church, Manhattan. Advent is a vibrant congregation worshipping in three services and two languages every Sunday. I currently serve as Dean of the Greater Bridgeport (CT) Chapter of the American Guild of Organists, as well as a member of the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians and the American Choral Directors Association. I have given organ recitals in New York and Connecticut.
I am available for workshops, consulting, short organ recitals, and clinics on choral techniques, liturgy planning, and congregational song.
