I'm a very versatile and well-rounded professional trumpet player. I play and gig in many styles: classical, jazz, blues, funk, latin, pop, etc.
I'm a pretty proficient improviser (and always working on improving), and have a strong upper register (but I'm not a screaming lead player. I'm good up to about F or F# above high C. Any higher is iffy, and I'm working on that, too.) I have a very nice, warm sound but can also make it brilliant when need be.
