ABOUT

I've been playing trumpet for many years. Originally from Illinois, I performed in various jazz groups, R&B groups, and orchestral ensembles.
I performed aboard cruiseships in showbands for 8 years. . . which included involvement in broadway style shows, jazz sets, and auxiliary blues shows. I'm currently residing in Spokane, WA, and looking forward to performing around here!
