I’m a professional brass musician and vocalist. I’ve played the trumpet for 20 years, and began singing professionally on jobs about 8 years ago. I play every possible genre of music, and have a very well developed musical ear. I’ve played over 1000 gigs, and with virtually every possible commercial group available in St. Louis MO, my hometown. I have contract festival experience, and have performed for two major cruise lines, Holland America and Carnival. I thrive in any musical environment, and have the specific ability to solo over any type of music with panache, as well as play horn section/background parts. I have a flexible dynamic Baritone voice, and am well suited to jazz and improv. heavy music of any type, beyond the four genres I listed.

Most of my engagements tend to be in evenings, but I can play a job anytime, day or night.
