About Me

I studied music performance for the saxophone and flute as well as piano in collage for five years and then became a student of the local jazz artist, Joe Daily here in Chicago. I have been playing professionally throughout the past 35 years. I have a passion for music that was passed on to me at a young age. As the music director of Faith Church in Stickney, IL I showed my students the importance of learning an instrument. Now my concentration is solely on the saxophone and flute; nothing beats the sweet sounds these instruments make. And every day I continue to hone my skills by practicing and performing.

My Musical Education Background

SIU-Carbondale - I had a special major called 'Performing Commercial Music'. It prepared me to run my music business as well as developed me to be the best musician I could be.
