have been performing professionally as a singer for 20 years in jazz, pop, opera, and musical theater in the Washington-DC area. I grew up mainly performing musical theater, but also sang with the Washington Opera and with the Choral Arts Society of Washington at Carnegie Hall, and sang the National Anthem for the Orioles and Washington Nationals Baseball teams, amongst other experiences. I then studied opera singing at McGill University in Montreal and in Austria and Italy, but also explored many genres of music within the Montreal music scene. After my studies, I moved to NYC and landed a position as an audio engineer intern at ishlab Studio in DUMBO. I was curious about musical creation on the other side of the glass and wanted to learn how to produce the music I create. Simultaneously, I joined gypsy jazz bands around NYC and Washington, DC and started performing in the jazz scenes to sing in a new stylistic way vocally (as compared to my opera studies). I then earned a place as one of six Artists in Residence at Strathmore Music Center in Maryland and moved to the DC area to participate in the fellowship program. It introduced me to the professional behind-the-scenes duties of a working musician and offered opportunities to headline performances at the Kennedy Center and at Blues Alley in DC, amongst other music centers. While at Strathmore, I released my first EP, which I wrote and co-produced. After the program finished, I moved back to NYC to perform my original music with my band in venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn and to sing and play gypsy jazz guitar. I was promoted at the music studio to an assistant position with platinum and major label artists, and I love being part of the creation process. I just shot my first music video with a professional crew of 16 people and will release my sophomore EP later this spring. I'm loving making music in NYC!
I've been teaching voice, keyboarding, and guitar for five years to students ranging from 5 years old to 75 in private lessons as well as lessons with music lesson companies. Most recently, I've been teaching songwriting with Kid Pan Alley, an organization that guides elementary school classes through the creation and concert performance process. With Kid Pan Alley, I had to work on a macro level, showing students quickly the principles of vocal technique and songwriting. In my one-on-one lessons with students, I incorporate Bel Canto and Speech Singing techniques (for vocals) and Alexander Technique (for all disciplines) in my teaching. I think it's important to work on music of the student's choosing, so that they will be inspired to practice with material they feel connected to.

Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma to a music-loving family, I began playing piano and guitar at a very young age. At age twelve, I began playing double bass, which has become my primary instrument. Throughout middle and high school, I received numerous awards for excellence in both jazz and classical music. After high school, I moved to the Oklahoma City area and had the opportunity to play with many of the great musicians who passed through, including Jon Faddis, Wynton Marsalis, Byron Stripling, and Anne Hampton Calloway.
Since moving to New York City, I have been fortunate enough to travel throughout the US, Canada, Caribbean, and Europe with such groups as Pete Robbins and Centric, Ryan Blotnick's Secret Mainstream, and The Paislies. Aside from my freelance work with various groups, I also play bass guitar in Brooklyn based rock band, Hungry Hands, as well as double bass in Karavika, an improvising chamber ensemble based on Indian folk melodies. As a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music and an active freelancer, I continue to search for new musical realms of expression within the context of improvisation.
Aside from a performing career, I enjoy sharing my diverse musical experiences with my students and helping them develop their creative abilities.

Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me.
Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me, but it will last your entire lifetime. I hope that all of your life you will have a rewarding relationship to music and the spirit of great sounds!
I'm originally from California. I have performances degrees from the Grove School, as well as San Diego State University.
I currently reside in New York City where I get the chance to play with some many great musicians. I have performed in great jazz clubs in New York, on Broadway, and performing arts centers across the country. I'm currently playing in many great performing ensembles. I have put out two CD's as a leader and played on multiple CD's for other artists.
It has been my pleasure to teach privately, as well as in the classroom for 7 years. I enjoy performing many different types of music. I pride myself on being very open minded in terms of musical taste. Never apologize for liking what you like! I bet there is something in that music which is great. I can't wait to learn something from the music you introduce to me.
I be glad to provide a full resume to anyone who requests it.

Whether you want to pursue a Musical Career or simply learn how to Play your Favorite Tunes for friends and family, I am here as your Teacher and Guide. I teach at my own home, commute to yours or through the use of Sype. Your choice.
As a Father of four, I have had the joy in teaching my children Guitar, Saxophone, Songwriting, Composition and Keyboard. As a parent I have found that Patience and Encouragement is sometimes the best form of support. It has been proven that learning Music helps develop intuition, self-awareness, and social skills as well as improve in other subjects not directly related to the arts such as Mathematics and Science.
One of the most important aspects of playing Music is being able to play by ear. This has been a priceless gift that I have developed throughout my life and I encourage all musicians, young and old, to do the same. The use of simple Rhythmic Dictation and Ear Training exercises can do wonders for "picking out" those unusual beats and harmonies we hear no matter what genre we are interested in.
I attended music courses at The Boston School of Contemporary Music, Thomas Jefferson College (MI), and have a BA double majoring in Music Composition and English at Columbia College Chicago.
Besides touring internationally as a Guitarist and Saxophonist, I am a Songwriter. Third Border's “Sun of Water; Sea of Light” was selected to be nominated for the Grammys as The Best Alternative Album of the Year in 2006. On this record, I played guitar, sang lead vocals and wrote all songs. If you are a songwriter, we can polish up your approach!
If you would like to learn how to compose a solo, a duet or ensemble, I can get you started in a low-stress, one-step-at-a-time procedure. As a composer, I have done sound design for film, dance, spoken word and multi-media performance - most notably with renowned poet Anne Carson and former members of The Merce Cunningham Dance Co. As principal composer and conductor, I formed New York City's first full-on Saxophone Orchestra; a 13-member ensemble.
I hope to talk to you soon!
