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.
I'm also excited to announce that I am now a faculty member within the Contemporary Jazz Studies program at Lincoln College!

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!
