Welcome

Please check back soon as I am in the process of adding new recordings throughout the site as well as a calendar of upcoming performances, pictures, links and other cool content!

In the meantime, have a look around to learn more about me and see what I'm up to. 

Feel free to contact me here for gigs, lessons, writing work - or just to say hello!

I'm in the process of having a number of my original compositions and arrangements published by Cherry Classics!

The first piece, an original composition entitled Duneden, is a haunting ballad composed in memory of my childhood home. You can check out a sample score, live recording -- and even purchase it! -- by selecting this link.

Be sure to check back soon for more information about new pieces and to get links for purchasing them directly through Cherry Classics. 

I'm excited to announce that I've been hired to cover Jim Pugh's leave of absence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and will be instructing their Jazz Composition course as well as leading their Repertory Jazz Orchestra.

Jason scheff

I had a great time performing with Jason Scheff (lead-singer for Chicago), Todd Rundgren, The Newbees, and All You Need is Love, with the Bad Ass Brass on the 70's Rock and Romance Cruise!

Although the follow-up Flower Power Cruise, and our shows with The Newbees and The Buckinghams were unfortunately cancelled as a result of the pandemic, be on the lookout for exciting things from The Bad Ass Brass!
