Musician, Teacher, Creator, Funkologist, Jazzmoligist
I have been playing music all my life (click here read more of my story). My focus is the Saxophone and Composition but since I’ve had time to study and explore I have taken on many instruments through the years. During all my years in school I have received prestigious awards and scholarships for my dedication, hard work, and my artistic exploration and expression. I have been teaching since 2003 both privately and in schools throughout the bay area, find out more by clicking (here) if your interested in taking private lessons! I have played many types and styles of music from traditional settings to new frontiers.
In the menu (under the picture) and by clicking various links (text highlighted in blue) you can check out what I’m up to, various bands I play in, how to get in touch if your looking to book me, stories about my projects and life, some pointers and tips involving theory and composition, and an email list you can sign into so you can be notified when I will be playing with one of my bands.
So hang out, explore, and if your looking for something specific hopefully you will find what your looking for.
