I graduated from University of Denver’s Lamont School of Music with a B.M. in Jazz and Commercial Piano. Not only have I studied intensely with Colorado fixture Eric Gunnison, but also with internationally touring artist Gerri Allen and even with jazz legend Billy Taylor. I won the Clarke Terry award for outstanding musicianship and was a recipient of the Cherrington Global Scholarship, a grant that allowed me to spend a year performing in Australia. I have worked as the pianist on a cruise ship and have performed in the Mediterranean, Hawaii, South America, and French Polynesia. While in Denver my group performed weekly at Baur's Lounge as host for their weekly jazz session. I was also named one of Colorado's 30 jazz musicians under 30 by radio station KUVO.
I recently moved to New Orleans where I perform and tour as a side man in several groups. Bands of mine have been featured on WWL's Eyewitness Morning News, and House of Blues New Orleans.
