I’m a life-long trumpet player with a passion not just for the music, but the whole process of creating and maintaining the instruments that help make that music great. My background now includes more than two decades of experience with industry leaders such as Kanstul Musical Instruments and SE Shires (Eastman Music Co), as well as with impressive newcomer BAC - Best American Craftsmen. At Kanstul, I was often involved in the design and manufacturing end of the process, and was responsible for the introduction of several new trumpet models. Having been around the industry for so long, and working with legendary craftsmen, I have a deep interest in the history of American brassmaking.
