I'm a jazz pianist, composer and instructor. I've been
playing professionally for 30 years. Currently, I live in
Greenville, SC. My hometown is Atlanta, and I've lived and
worked all over the Southeast with lots of great musicians.
I attended Georgia State University, where I played in the
Jazz Band, which led to a three week tour of Scandinavia. I
also attended Berklee in 1982. In 1985, I attended the Banff
Summer Jazz Workshop with Dave Liebman, Dave Holland, John
Abercrombie, Kenny Wheeler, Cecil Taylor, Julian
My first road band was the Glenn Miller Orchestra. Later I
worked with the Artie Shaw Orchestra and with Matt "Guitar"
