ABOUT

PROFILE
I am an experienced musician that takes all projects to heart no matter how small. I believe in team work and work very well with people. Showing up to a rehearsal or gig prepared is a must for me.

They cover a great deal of Jimmy Buffet’s music as well as CCR, Beatles, Wings, Eagles, Eric Clapton, Fleetwood Mac, Zac Brown and others.

I teach all ages at all levels and any style.

While in the Navy bands I performed with the following groups: ceremonial band, concert band, big band, brass bands, small jazz combos, show band and top 40 rock band.
I was stationed in Orlando, FL (1990 - 1994), Yokosuka Japan (1997 - 1999), Memphis, TN (1999 - 2002), Norfolk, VA (2002 - 2006), Newport, RI (2006 - 2008) and retired while in New Orleans, LA (2008 - 2013).
