I hold a Diploma in Jazz Studies from Capilano University and have been active in Vancouver, performing a variety of genres as a sideman and bandleader. I currently live in Victoria on Vancouver Island, but travel to Vancouver regularly.
My goal is to foster meaningful relationships through collaborating with creative and reaching musicians.
