Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I've been playing Saxophone, Clarinet, and Flute professionally in the Twin Cities area since 1999. I have played for many national acts, toured nationally with bands, and freelanced for years in the Orlando/Tampa, Florida area. My ensembles; the Swing Trio, Jazz Quartet, Small Big Band, and Classical Duo can be heard locally in a variety of settings and at: www.livemusicjazz.com. In the past, I?ve toured with Melissa Manchester, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and have had steady engagements with Norwegian, Princess, and Scandinavian World Cruise Lines, The Grand Floridian Hotel, and Seaworld Renaissance Hotels, and have worked as a pit musician in Tampa, Orlando, Minneapolis, St. Paul, and as an auxiliary member of the Jacksonville Symphony. I have also taught as an adjunct at the College of St. Benedict/St. Johns University, group and private lessons at high schools in the west metro, and now teach privately.
