I earned a Masters of Jazz Studies at the University of New Orleans and a Bachelors of Music in Classical Performance at Michigan State University where I studied with Peter Dominguez and Rodney Whitaker. In graduate school, I was lucky to learn from jazz greats like Ellis Marsalis and Harold Batiste. Then, during the five years I spent in New Orleans as a full-time musician, I had some incredible experiences performing and recording with members of Soul Asylum, G Love and Special Sauce, Blind Melon, and Galactic. Since moving to the Puget Sound area I have worked with King of Hawaii, El Vez, Kim Field, Thione Diop, and many other artists.
