- I work in the Seattle area, as a
web and database programmer.
My Music Background
- I play trumpet, trombone and horn pretty
equally at this point, and play tuba a lesser amount. I enjoy playing
in the pit orchestras of musicals, and that's what I find myself doing

- This was a pet project of mine while taking
a year-long course in Jazz History at Georgetown University. I've found dozens
of references, and other hornists have assisted me in putting together
even more references. There's information on jazz hornists,
as well as recordings and the occasional festival.
Potomac River Jazz Club
- When I was in the Washington, D.C. area,
I had the good fortune to be involved in one of the PRJC bands, the
Federal Focus Jazz Band. This was a band co-sponsored by the PRJC and
a non-profit company called Federal Focus, and was intended to teach the traditional
jazz styles to younger musicians to keep the spirit of the this often-overlooked
genre of jazz alive. I played with this group for five seasons, two on trumpet,
one on trombone, one on tuba, and the last one on clarinet. At that point,
at the ripe old age of 27, I was retired from the "youth" band.
After retiring from the band, I was on the
PRJC Board of Directors for a short while, concluding with my move up to
the Boston area. Click here
