Started playing again in 2011 after many years away from the horn. Studied at Berklee College of Music back in the early 1980s (Professional Music Program) and have played professionally off and on since, but mostly guitar and voice for the last 15+ years or so. I'm having a fantastic time playing and performing again on the trumpet, and firmly back on the "get better" bandwagon—I've been dedicated to Claude Gordon's "Systematic Approach" since my return.

I'm currently the lead trumpet player for the Lakes Area Swing Band, based in Antioch, IL; and principal trumpet for the Arlington Heights Community Concert Band, in Arlington Heights, IL.
