Hi! I'm a Jazz Trumpeter, Cornetist, Composer, Arranger and Bandleader from Boston currently living in Brooklyn. I focus on essential trumpet skills as well as improvisation for all instruments in a variety of styles, from avant-garde original music, free improvisation, and jazz standards. Over the decade I've been playing I've studied under the likes of Tiger Okoshi, Jimmy Owens, Reggie Workman, Charles Tolliver, Chris Jaudes, Tim Hagans, and Ingrid Jensen.

I'm looking forward to helping trumpeters develop instrumental proficiency through a Caruso-Inflected method that focuses on building a strong embrasure, relieving tension, and good air support.

I also hope to help you let loose your inner dynamic, powerful improvisor by systematically building a vocabulary that will allow you play proficiently in all contexts while expressing a strong musical personality.

I look forward to hearing from you!
