I am a composer for musical theatre. My style ranges from Broadway to hiphop, pop rock, and sentimental ballads.
Do you play live?
No, I don't do any performances myself... I only compose music.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It has revolutionized the music industry, democratizing it, so that we are all on an even playing field.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
It's a dream, but I'm realistic.
My first musical, Big Bang! was staged in 1995. Since then I have written and staged 19 musicals, including The Magic Paintbrush, Temptations, Sayang, Song of the Whale, Exodus, Yum Sing! and many others. I have also written a TV musical called School House Rockz.
Schonberg and Boublil, Stephen Sondheim, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe.
London's West End. I watch as many musicals as I can whenever I get the chance to visit London!
