Hello World! // Spring 2019

Hello and Happy Spring! Welcome to my website. I hope that you enjoy a glimpse into my world as a musician and educator. This Spring is bringing lots of exciting things with it, and I’m so glad that you’re along for the ride. A huge highlight of 2019 so far has been receiving the Gerry and Franca Mulligan Scholarship in support of my Graduate Studies at The Juilliard School. I was honored to spend a day with Franca learning about Gerry’s life and visiting his studio. Thank you to the Gerry and Franca Mulligan Foundation!

These past few months have been full of touring and/or performing with many different ensembles. From New York to L.A. to Abu Dhabi, I’ve had the pleasure of making music with Ulysses Owens Jr.’s New Century Jazz Orchestra for Kurt Elling’s“The Big Blind”,The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Arturo O’Farrill & The Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra, and Sherrie Maricle  & The DIVA Jazz Orchestra.

My first record as leader for Posi-Tone Records will be available at the end of May. I can’t wait to share this new music with you! We will be celebrating the CD release at Dizzy’s Club on Tuesday, May 28th at 7:30PM. I hope you can join us! In the meantime, please feel free to check out and subscribe to my latest videos which are released weekly on my YouTube channel.

Thank you for visiting and for your continued support! If you’d like to stay in the loop, please subscribe to my mailing list here.
