I was born in Danbury, CT and I spent most of my formative years in New Haven, CT surrounded by music. The city was alive and all artistic disciplines were flourishing. New York "cats" would come up to jam bringing promising musicians down to the city. Local musicians were the toast of the town and all genres of music were doing well; R&B, Rock, and Jazz lead the way for folks looking have a great time. The performance venues provided a great learning environment for all musicians. Competitive and deep were the performers, but they inspired knowledge as well as presence.

I attended the Educational Center for the Arts, the Title XX Program (a copy of the Soho Artistic Center) and performed in a number of bands, which helped to develop my sound. The "Heirloom" project was born out of this wonderful period of musical development & association. I was lucky to have associated with people who had performed with some of the best in the business.

I play a Yanagisawa soprano sax and use a number of keyboards to bring my compositions to life. I have opened for a number of national artist such as Spyro Gyra, the late George Howard, Pieces of A Dream, Gerald Alston, Miles Jaye & have appeared on a number of local television programs.

Currently, the Maryland region is my home base and I perform a brand of contemporary jazz to rave reviews. Enjoy "Heirloom"; the music is presented in the hope that it will inspire tapping feet & happy faces… take care & I'll see you soon.
