I was asked to write an article in the Local 802 AFM member magazine Allegro about my journey to becoming a composer of musicals and my collaboration with Christian Duhamel and Charissa Bertels on The Uncivil Ones. Now it's in print and available online as well! I am so grateful for this opportunity to share my story and celebrate our collaboration and dream of the next steps we'll take together!
