Collaboration &

Creative direction

First off, I love collaboration! It's wonderful. And I also believe that any nourishing and fruitful collaboration requires clear communication on expectations. So before initiating any collaboration, support, or work relationship, we will start with a conversation to see if it's mutually a good fit :)

 

Collaboration (email me)

In this scenario, one of us is listed as a feature or we're co-creators. I value collaboration vs musician-for-hire work and enjoy giving and receiving candid yet compassionate and constructive feedback. I seek collaborations where all parties bringing their own energy, enthusiasm, and experience to the table.

With other artists, writers, and creatives

I love working with visual artists, poets, etc to create work together that's mixed media. Some ways we could work together:

  • You can place my music in your video work (sync/licensing)

  • You can hire me to help with scoring, music supervision, or sound design

  • I can create an original track or song that uses your recited poetry or accompanies your visual art, art installation, gallery show, video project, etc

  • We can work together on a piece of writing: interview, creative nonfiction, mixed media (music and writing together)

  • I can perform during a part of your theater production on stage or virtually

  • You can add my music to your playlist

  • And anything else we/you can dream of...
