ABOUT

I am a working musician. I have a daytime gig as a human resource manager and I play in my off time depending on the gig. I can read and write charts and have done recordings and also been on a world tour. I don't like to spend a lot of time rehearsing, which is why I tend to prefer and accepts gigs where there are charts and I don't have to rely so much on memorizing material.

Over the past 3-4 years, I've played most of the major local jazz festivals backing world-renown smooth jazz artists to include Gerald Albright, Everette Harp, Eric Marienthal, Steve Cole, Cindy Bradley, Althea' Rene, Dean James, Jackiem Joyner, Richard Elliott and more.

I want to help raise awareness across the country that San Antonio has some top-notch musicians who can hit as well as those in the music centers (CA, NY, etc.).
