I enjoy the people in the community of music and the great things that we accomplish together through collaboration. I believe in constant education and think that every day and every moment is a learning opportunity in someway or another. I'm a good person who really cares about the interest and well-being of others and will do whatever it takes to make sure that we achieve and go beyond any of our musical goals.
I am a professional funk/rock trombone player in the Boston area and perform around the country regularly (when there's not a pandemic…). I run a 28 person brass band in Lowell and have taken us from playing small bar gigs to touring the country once a year. I also play a lot of weddings and events so I am constantly working on my chops to stay fresh for the next gig. I'm versatile and have many skills to offer and would love to work with you on whatever your musical goals are and together I'm sure we can achieve great things. Feel free to reach out anytime and we can at least discuss what you're looking for and see if we are a good fit for each other.
