Upcoming Performances

I just put together a new webpage for my music, including recordings, proflies of my bands, schedules, and other stuff. Check it out!

I moonlight as a saxophonist and a trumpet player. Until moving out of Baltimore, I used to play soprano sax with Dixieland band Sac au Lait and alto sax with jazz trio Boostimus, as well as various instruments in several Johns Hopkins-related ensembles. While I lived in Wisconsin, I played with the Appleton-based Swing Time Big Band as a trumpet/sax player and Big Band Reunion as a tenor sax player.

Now that I'm in South Carolina, I'm director of the Spartanburg Jazz Ensemble and part-time soprano sax player in the Windjammers' Dixieland Band. I play with Form Follows Function on Thursdays at the Grille 33 in Greenville. I also play saxophone for Zataban (a blues band) and Earsight (a jazz/funk organ quintet), and I just started a duo called Cat and Mouse with bassist Jerry Thompson.
