ABOUT

I have just moved to Missoula from the NY area where I received a degree in Jazz and Performance (with a minor in Classical) from William Paterson University Conservatory, one of the top 5 jazz programs nationwide (according to Downbeat magazine). I am a saxophonist, flutist, clarinetist, educator, composer, arranger, and copyist and have substantial training and experience in all these areas. I been part of big bands such as the New York Big Band, the WPU Jazz Orchestra, and the MSM Pre-College Big Band, several small groups, and have led bands on occasions such as weddings, engagement parties, summer music festivals, Church concert series, etc. Although my training is primarily in jazz, classical, and world musics, I have performed and recorded with artists of the rock, blues, folk, funk, and pop genres as well. If you are an existing band looking for a woodwind doubler, someone planning a party or other event, or a business/restaurant owner looking to enhance your business with music, I would be happy to help. For an artist bio or some sample recordings, please feel free to send me an email. Thanks!
