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, and have had the privilege to share the stage with many great musicians over the course of my career including: Phish, Carlos Santana, The Trey Anastasio Band, Twiddle, Pink Talking Fish, The One O' Clock Lab Band, James Polk, A live One, The Sneakers Jazz Band, Kilimanjaro, The Glenn Rexache Group and Beto Y Los Fairlanes.
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'm an original member of "The Giant Country Horns" of Phish renown.
I have recorded albums with Phish, The Trey Anastasio Band, James Polk, Beto and the Fairlanes, Pamela Hart, 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!
