2014

I am a graduate student from California State University Northridge with a degree in Jazz Studies. I have been playing the saxophone for 12 years now and flute for about 5. I have been fortunate to study under Rob Lockart and Katisse Buckingham, both studio giants in their own respects and with luck I will there too one day. As of now I have worked with Jimmy Borges, Barbara Morrison, as well as Melissa Manchester, all great vocalists that I considered myself lucky to work with. I have been teaching now off and on when I had the time and look forward to working with more students in the future as there is not enough music education made available to the masses anymore.
