Welcome, and thanks for checking out my web site!  I’m a jazz saxophonist, woodwind doubler, composer/arranger, and educator living in Connecticut.  I hope that you enjoy perusing the compositions, arrangements, and audio samples for big band and small group.  Enjoy the music!  


I am incredibly humbled and honored to have been chosen as the 2014 Connecticut Teacher of the Year! Please visit the Teacher of the Year page.

The honor of being Teacher of the Year extended to a visit to the White House where President Obama recognized all the Teachers of the Year. Click here for his address. President Obama's Address.
