About Me

Cover 3

Hi there and welcome.  I’ve been a professional saxophone player for most of my adult life mostly playing in the Baltimore/Washington DC area but with some touring and other travel thrown in.  I’ve played and recorded lots of different types of music including: Jazz, Big Band, Pop, Rock, Funk, R&B, Country, and even some Classical.  I play all four saxes (the normal ones – tenor, baritone, alto, and soprano), clarinet, flute, and an Akai EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument).  I am currently playing with several bands including: Crack the Sky, Technicolor Motor Home (a tribute to Steely Dan), The Speakers of the House, Two Big Bands -The Melting Pot and The Don Arnold Big Band, Honest Lee Soul, and The Richard Walton Group. I have also had the opportunity to perform and record with many other people on a one-off basis. Over the years, I have spent a lot of time learning about recording and mixing and have continued to work on my craft and enhance my studio space. I have also spent a ton of time working with several professional horn sections including live performances, studio recordings, writing and arranging, and chart creation. The pandemic showed me just how much I could accomplish from my personal studio both for my personal projects as well as working for others. During the pandemic I was able to record, mix, and video edit 5 virtual big band videos, 6 sax quartets with me playing all the parts along with percussion, and I tracked parts for 5 different albums including solo work, horn arranging, chart creation, and production. After many years of having music and recording on the back burner I am hoping to transition back into a more full-time role.
