ABOUT

The music samples above, except for Blind Love, are just samples of me goofing off at my desk and are all straight through played, no edits, so be kind in your judgement of my playing! lol

I'll sing or play anything! Good range on both trumpet and voice. Currently am the lead singer/ trumpet player for the No Bounds Band and until the recent retirement, the trumpet player for RonMoody & the Centaurs, long-standing (over 50 years) popular regional group.

I was a music-major with a full-ride on trumpet at UNCW, but was unable to fulfill that dream due to family concerns at the time and ended up in the US Navy where I became an engineer. I now do that, very well I might add, but making music is still a huge part of who I am. I have a full and busy life, but want to include performing, whether just jamming with a group of cool folks or out on gigs entertaining a crowd. Making money is not important, just the creativity of making music matters; anything else is gravy...
