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!
University of Illinois
I'm excited to announce that I've been hired as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I will be instructing their Jazz Composition course as well as leading their Repertory Jazz Orchestra.
I'm also excited to announce that I am now a faculty member within the Contemporary Jazz Studies program at Lincoln College!

II'm in the process of having 2 of my original compositions and arrangements published by Cherry Classics. Be sure to check back soon for more information about the pieces and to get links for purchasing them directly through Cherry Classics!
University of Illinois Jazz Trombone Ensemble
Here's a video of me performing with the University of Illinois Jazz Trombone Ensemble at the 2017 American Trombone Workshop after winning the National Jazz Trombone Ensemble Competition. The entire set was either written or arranged by members of the group and you can hear two of my original compositions, "The H is O" and "Duneden," at 3:51 and 44:12, respectively.
The Jazz Trombone Ensemble also won the International Trombone Association Kai Winding Competition in 2017 and the American Trombone Workshop Competition again the following year.
I hope you enjoy the performance!
