I'm a Berklee College of Music Graduate and have a Master's Degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I have over 15 years experience as a professional performing and recording musician and over seven as a composer and sound designer.
As a trumpet player and recording artist, I've recorded with and/or performed with Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, Darlene Love, The Drifters, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, The Marvelettes, The Toys, Eddie Manion (E-Street Band), The Disco Biscuits, and Billy Walton (guitarist for South Side Johnny and the Asbury Jukes).
I have performed at the Newport Jazz Festival (2015) and I've also worked at Renegade Studios in NYC as a session musician with Actor/Musician Stevie Van Zandt (Sopranos, Lillehammer, E-Street Band) to help complete a new "Disciples of Soul" record.
As a composer and sound designer, I’ve worked with a number of production companies and television networks including Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., The Smithsonian Channel, Chicken and Egg Productions, and AffinityFilms and have been engaged with the Peabody Award-winning director and filmmaker Judith Helfand for several projects. I am also currently engaged as a freelance engineer with Pivot Audio in Los Angeles and act as Director of Sales at New West Collection in Los Angeles.
