I’ve been playing saxophone and guitar for more than twenty years and love sharing what I’ve learned with others of any age or ability level. Whether you’re just beginning or an advanced player, I can help you achieve your musical goals.
As a Music Business graduate of the University of Houston's Moores School of Music I was fortunate to be able to study with saxophone performance and recording artist Woody Witt, and be a member of the University's Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Noe Marmolejo. Other studies during my tenure at U of H took place at the university's Bauer School of Business where he earned a Minor in Marketing. Prior to arriving at U of H, I studied under popular Houston jazz saxophonist Martin Langford and Doug Skinner of Texas State University in San Marcos.
I have extensive experience performing as a solo artist as well as part of jam bands, big bands, jazz combos, wind ensembles, and smaller chamber ensembles at venues large and small. I’ve been fortunate to work with some amazing music industry talents from Texas to the New England states and Los Angeles. I’ve shared studios with producers, engineers and musicians responsible for the success of Jason Mraz, Lifehouse, Prince, Usher, and more. Performing in a variety of different groups has placed me on stage with some of the greatest of today's musicians including jazz greats Bill Evans, Vincent Herring, Conrad Herwig, and Jon Faddis as well as popular artists Edwin McCain, Green River Ordinance, Lucinda Williams, and more. I have performed on large stages like House of Blues and Hard Rock Cafe as well as smaller jazz clubs, major television networks like FOX, ABC, and CBS, and radio stations in South Texas and surrounding areas.
Currently, the bulk of my playing is for private events such as weddings, cocktail hours, corporate events, dinner parties, holiday parties, and more.
