A Bit About Me

Getting the opportunity to perform infront of a live audience each night in a variety of styles has been a major opportunity since graduating from college.  I love performing jazz but have really opened up to the needs of commercial live music that I didn't have the chance to explore before cruise ships.  I really enjoy the vibes, the different people and working with other musicians from all over the world.  In my spare time I enjoying hitting the gym, writing tunes and practicing and checking out new places all over the world.
