I grew up in the Hudson Valley, New York and was fortunate to be exposed to many great musicians at a young age. My musical journey began by studying classical piano with Gwen Stevens and participating in masterclasses/chamber music coaching with a variety of artists. I later discovered jazz and began to take the saxophone more seriously, studying with Tim Price in New York.
I moved to Austin in mid 2007 and quickly began performing with a variety of groups and building my private studio of piano and saxophone students. Over the past few years I have been lucky enough to perform and record with many great musicians, arrange significant portions of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker score for jazz combo as part of a dance production, and much more.
