ABOUT

I am a saxophonist/woodwind doubler/EWI player looking for gigs and groups in New Jersey. I recently graduated from the University of Kentucky with the Doctor of Musical Arts in Saxophone Performance degree. I am crossover performer, playing in many genres such as classical, jazz, latin, tango, rock, funk, world, R&B, electronic and many more. I have performed at prestigious festivals such as the Montreux Jazz Festival in Montreux, Switzerland, the North Sea Jazz Fest in Rotterdam and at the Elmhurst Jazz Festival in Illinois. During my career as a saxophonist, I have performed with major artists such as Denis DiBlasio, Jeff Coffin, Joe Lovano and Jeff Driskill.
