At home in a wide variety of styles my experience ranges from playing lead in West Side Story to performing Bach’s Magnificat on a valveless natural trumpet.  I have played with numerous ensembles through out the Pacific Northwest including the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, the Seattle Opera and the 5th Avenue Theatre; currently I am a member of the Northwest Sinfonietta, Tacoma Symphony Orchestra, Bellevue Philharmonic, Seattle Trumpet Consort, Concerto Baroque and the cover band, Peaceable Lane.

A keen advocate of contemporary music, I have participated in numerous local and world premieres including works by composers such as
John Harbison, Michael Colgrass, Stuart Dempster, John Huggler, Michael Weinstein, Eric Chasalow, John McDonald, Marti Epstein and Allen Anderson among others.  I was a founding member of the Warebrook Contemporary Music Festival in northern Vermont.
