Hi there, thanks for visiting! I guess even introverts need a web presence in this day and age so here I am!
Allow me to introduce myself.
I've been playing saxophone professionally for 34 years. I am an original member of the Giant Country Horns (Phish) and toured with Phish in the summer of 1991. I was also a member of the Trey Anastasio Band (TAB) and toured with Trey between 2003-2013. I have had the privilege to share the stage with many other great musicians over the course of my career including: Twiddle, Pink Talking Fish, The One O' Clock Lab Band, James Polk, Kirk Covington, A live One, The Sneakers Jazz Band, Kilimanjaro, The Glenn Rexache Group, Beto Y Los Fairlanes, The Pictures Band and Sauce.
I have also had the good fortune to play such venues and shows as Madison Square Garden, Bonaroo, Austin City Limits, The Tonight show, The Carson Daley Show and Late Night with David Letterman.
I have recorded albums with Phish, The Trey Anastasio Band, Belisbaha, Murali Coryell, James Polk, Beto and the Fairlanes, Millennium Swing and The One O' Clock Lab Band. I have also played on many sound tracks, demos and commercials as well.
I play tenor and soprano saxophones, flute, keyboards, electronic wind synthesizer, and can sing background vocals. I'm always open to exploring new musical pathways and the resultant sonic palettes which accompany them.
I love music. I love to learn it, play it and teach it!
