Now entering my third decade of playing; I attended the University of Nevada, Reno, and the New School Jazz Program in New York. Relocated to the Bay Area in 2001, where I lead a quintet; our new album is available for sampling and purchase at

I play a Martin Committee trumpet (c. 1954) and a Yamaha 6310z flugelhorn, and use mouthpieces by Mark Curry.

I consider my most influential teachers to have been Laurie Frink, Larry Engstrom, Tom Peron, and Vince Penzarella (trumpet); and Kenny Werner, John McNeil, and Steve Lacy (improvistation).
