about elliott

First off, Cheryl, my wonderful wife - that's her in the picture with me - is an awesome graphic designer. You are going to need some awesome graphic design work in your near future. Trust me. I'm telling you now so that you will remember where to go. You may already know her through Etsy.com or Ravelry.com as yarnbee. Find her at her business website at Theory One Design or at yarnbee.blogspot.com. Tell her I said Hi!

I'm a music composer/ sound designer, writer, researcher and the founder and artistic director of Ishah 'El theatre arts, a non-profit, multi-cultural theatre arts organization involved in the development, education, support, promotion and production of theatre with an emphasis on faith and spirituality.


I'm also a DJ with WMUA 91.1 FM at UMASS Amherst, and I host the Grooved Pavement world music show on Fridays from noon to 2:30 PM EST. Tune in and check it out sometime, either on your radio or you can stream it live through iTunes. Go to iTunes, click on "Radio" and search for WMUA in the "College / University" and "Eclectic" sections.


I have some ambitious plans in the works that I will be revealing here and elsewhere soon: more music, writing, audio plays and podcasts of current projects. Currently I'm working on getting my website completed, updating all of these various social web sites, FUNDRAISING, and in the near future will be on several collaborative sites. I hope I find you there.

While you are here, please check out some of my music composition samples on my page. Maybe we could work on your current or next project. Much more to come.

As you can tell, I keep very busy, but I'm usually available to jump into a project if I'm given enough notice to be able to re-coordinate my schedule. I've gotten a lot of freelance theatre work at the last minute due to the "Oh, S**T! We forgot to hire a (fill in the blank)!" factor.

I was also a chef in a previous lfe - Escoffier, perhaps? - which seems to be the thing that most people are fascinated about, so I cook for close friends & small groups, make & sell my own spice blends and occasionally write about what I'm cooking and eating.

reach out & touch me!
feel free to contact me via any of the info listed here.
