Weddings & Events


Let's make beautiful memories together. Whether your event calls for an electrifying experience, a more traditional setting or a combination of both, I will be able to help. 



Work with me as I create a special piece of music for you or your loved ones. Whether you need an epic, orchestral theme song, a luscious string piece or wish to gift a beautiful melody on a special occasion, I will be able to help. Take it a step further and have me perform the composition in person!
