I am a freelance horn player residing in Teaneck, New Jersey. I received my Bachelor of Music from Virginia Commonwealth University, his Master of Music from the University of Connecticut, and an Artist's Diploma from Montclair State University. I have played in several groups in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania. Orchestras he plays with include the Montclair Orchestra, Park Avenue Chamber Symphony, Chelsea Symphony, and Garden State Philharmonic.
I have played in prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kaufman Center, Symphony Space, Jorgensen Center, and the International Horn Symposium. As a soloist, I've performed at Carnegie Hall, Society of Musical Arts, and the Northeast Horn Workshop. I have had the opportunity to perform with artists including Solomiya Ivakhiv, Dionne Jackson, Bucky Pizzarelli, Donny McCaslin, and The Machine.
I find great joy in performing and in teaching new students of the instrument. I would like to thank his family and friends for all the support that he has received.
