ABOUT

Seeking to support any and all musical acts looking for horns (section or solo). Willing to do live gigs or studio sessions. I have experience playing within a wide variety of styles/instrumentations - acoustic duos, chamber groups, pit ensembles, jazz combos, rock bands, soul/funk horn sections, and original live neosoul/hip hop groups. Light touring experience. Extensive skills in improvisation, sight-reading, and extended techniques, especially on flute. Extremely comfortable accompanying vocalists as a solo horn player.
