  • Stephen is a very talented composer, pushing both narrative and character forward in effortlessly engaging sound. Because of his skill, I knew he would excel at orchestrating my original compositions for my musical "Gerd and the Goose Girl." Collaborating with him was a breeze.The final product is thrilling, theatrical, and epic in scope, exactly what I was going for in my Norse mythology- fairy tale - historical blend. I would definitely work with him again, both as an actor and composer.
