Welcome to Our Website!
Our collaboration began in the BMI Musical Theater Workshop in New York City, where we met by chance and wrote our first song together. One song led to another, songs grew into musicals, and musicals grew into a body of work– an ongoing dialogue of words and music between two people who love what they do, and love doing it together.
We’re lucky and grateful for our long-standing collaboration and for the experiences, friends and community we’ve found along the way.
There’s lots to explore here. Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
