About Me

I am a jazz guitarist based in Houston, TX. I received a BA in music at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami. While attending the Frost School of Music, I studied under Randall Dollahon and received a downbeat award with the funk-fusion ensemble in 2006. In 2015 I received a Masters in Music Education. I currently enjoy being a full-time educator and gigging musician. I teach full-time at the Emery/Weiner School where the instrumental music program has won the prestigious NAMM award for “Outstanding Support of Music Education” 3 years in a row. I am also currently composing and recording with the jazz/fusion group Groove Adhesive as well as arranging, recording, and producing for my own project The All Original Cover Band. In July 2020, I will be releasing a full-length album of solo-guitar arrangements titled “Solo Sessions Vol. I.”

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
