About Me

Born and raised in the shadow of one of the world’s greatest cultural centers, New York City, I have been educated at some of the world’s finest conservatories: The Julliard School; The Mannes College of Music; Manhattan School of Music, as well as Montclair State (then) College and Seton Hall University. My sacred/liturgical music is published by the top publishers of Catholic liturgical music in the English-speaking world: OCP (a/k/a Oregon Catholic Press) of Portland, Oregon; G.I.A. Publications, Inc. of Chicago, Illinois; World Library Publications of Schiller Park, Illinois and Lorenz Co. of Dayton, Ohio.

My compositional repertoire is diverse, from Catholic liturgical and sacred music to chamber music, oratorio, symphony and opera.

You can view some of my compositions on the IMSLP website.


At the age of 10, I started in the music industry. My involvement in pastoral music continued throughout my formative years. I studied music composition and keyboard in the college prep program at the Julliard School in New York, where I graduated with honors and received an honorary scholarship. Following that, I continued my studies in composition at the Mannes College of Music and Manhattan School of Music, both in New York City.
As a director of music ministry, I have served parishes in the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, as well as in the Diocese of Paterson, New Jersey. I have given workshops both for the Archdiocese of Newark and for the National Association of Pastoral Musicians. Currently, I am the Director of Worship and Sacred Music at The Church of Saint Luke in Toms River, New Jersey.
