Alan Menken Scholarship!

I recently was told the news that I am the recipient of NYU Steinhardt’s prestigious Alan Menken Scholarship, which contributes to my tuition for my remaining 3 semesters at NYU. Mr. Menken (the Grammy, Tony & Oscar-winning composer of Little Shop of Horrors, Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and many more) personally selects each year’s winners from a pool of Composition majors. Past winners include Brian Lowdermilk and Caleb Hoyer.

Tisch New Theatre's NEXT TO NORMAL

In the fall of 2018, I was cast as Gabe in a production of NEXT TO NORMAL mounted by Tisch New Theatre—an entirely student-run organization that seeks to make professional-caliber theatrical productions accessible to all NYU students. Starting mid-September, we launched into an intense rehearsal process that culminated in a 2-week Off-Broadway run at the historic SoHo Playhouse. I couldn’t be more proud of my fellow castmates, the brilliant creative and design teams, and all the band and crew members that brought one of my favorite musicals to life.

More production photos and videos will soon be available on the Media page of this site.
