...jazz aficionado...and still learning...
I currently hold a Masters of Music degree in Jazz from the University of
Alabama. I'm a jazz alto saxophonist, clarinetist, and pianist. (Check out my music on my
MySpace page.) I am also a freelance journalist for
All About Jazz, a published jazz/beat poet, I've hosted a jazz radio show
on New Rock 90.7 (Hear Me Talkin' to Ya?), and I'm currently looking
for a teaching job at a willing university. I perform and arrange any and
all styles of music locally and abroad, have had original compositions
played in a variety of locations, give lectures pertaining to jazz, heavily
advocate jazz education, and I'm quite a foreign and silent film fanatic.
Eccentric in nature, warm in personality, witty in humor, aloof to close-mindedness, and
coffee connoisseur 24/7. That's me in a
nutshell... preferably a Ferrero Rocher nutshell.
