I am a saxophonist and woodwind musician living in Las Vegas, NV with my wife (and favorite dancer), Teresa. My musical interests are focused primarily on jazz, world music, and jam band music, but I really appreciate anything that is played skillfully and sincerely.
I have worked with a variety of artists including Alan Parsons, The O’Jays, Moksha, and the Santana horns in live and studio settings. I am also a part of many shows including the Las Vegas production of Jersey Boys, Vegas! The Show, Human Nature, and The Rat Pack Is Back. My most recent recording is “Further to Fly” by Wave Mechanics Union featuring Jon Anderson.
I am always interesting in new playing opportunities, particularly any involving new, original music.
I also teach lessons at my home studio and also via Skype. I feel very passionate about the saxophone and I really enjoy sharing that with students. If you’re interested in lessons, you can find more information on the Student Resources Page.
Outside of music, I enjoy cooking (and eating!), travel, good bourbon and wine.
Thanks for taking a minute to look around! If you want to see/hear some of my playing, please check out the Sights and Sounds page. I have several recent recordings and a few older ones, too.
If you’d like to get in touch with me with any questions or just to say hi, send an email.
