B i o g r a p h y

Enjoying a varied musical career as a trumpet soloist, chamber musician, conductor, and scholar, I serve as Artistic Director and Conductor of the Hartford Independent Chamber Orchestra, Music Director of the Connecticut Youth Symphony, Music Director of Capitol Symphonic Winds, Conductor of the Charter Oak Brass Band, and Conductor of the Windham Concert Band. In the academic context, I teach music through the study of trumpet, coach chamber music as well as present courses in music theory, musicology and liberal arts study emphasizing the art of listening. Additionally, I have developed a course entitled “Love: Taking It; Making It!” focusing on the music, life, and times of The Beatles.


A musician first and foremost, I have performed and conducted throughout North America and Europe. My current academic associations include Central Connecticut State University and The Hartt School of the University of Hartford.
