Cincinnati-based saxophonist who pretends to be a writer sometimes.

About Me

I feel the same way about contributing to All About Jazz as I imagine most of the writers here do: I see this is as small contribution that I can make to the well-being of the art form, and to hard-working artists who deserve more publicity than they're getting.

I'm a saxophonist and have worked professionally in Kansas City, Denver, and most recently Cincinnati, Ohio. Upon moving to Cincinnati in August of 2010, I noticed that while the jazz scene is not lacking in talent, there is a genuine need for publicity here. My contributions to AAJ are a small effort to help alleviate that problem!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
