I combine a traditional jazz background with new rock approaches, and throw in whatever else inspires me.
That could be Migos, The National, The Bad Plus, or a Spoon track. My goal is to serve the song, and I’m always looking for new sources of inspiration.
I studied under Tito Puente’s trumpet player, Ray Vega, in college pursuing a degree in jazz performance. I currently study under Thomas Pridgen of The Mars Volta and Christian Scott fame.
I have had the pleasure of recording for, performing with and composing for various artists like Matt Pond PA, Nataly Dawn, Ezra Furman, Hazel English, Satellite Mode, Doncat, J Hoard, Brent Walsh, Bird by Bird, Fox and Woman, Edwin Valero and others.
