I'm a  vibraphonist, pianist, producer and arranger with touring and performances in over 75 countries around the world. I lead my critically acclaimed touring ensemble with highlighted performances at the Kennedy Center, The Newport Jazz Festival, and Lincoln Center. As a creative director and producer, I have been responsible for the development of multiple projects including The Jazz at Sea Concert Series on board Regent & Oceania Cruise Lines,  Macau II for Cirque du Soleil in China, The Acoustic Confidential Concert Series at the St. Regis Aspen, "Between the Lines" featuring CLINT HOLMES (Palazzo Hotel, Las Vegas), Modern Warrior LIVE (On Tour), "Soundtrack" (The Westgate, Las Vegas) and collaborations with Spiegelworld Productions and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines. I tour on behalf of Jazz at Lincoln Center to Doha, Qatar and the UAE as an ambassador to Arts and Culture and work as a musical director for touring artists such as Julio Iglesias, Wendy Moten, Clint Holmes and Jane Monheit. I have performed with Dave Brubeck, Clark Terry, Milt Hinton, amongst many other notable icons of jazz. 

I started the Icons of Jazz (formally The Legacy of Jazz) in 2022 at The Cary Theater in Cary, NC and have grown to 10+ venues around the country including featured shows at the DC National Gallery of Art and the 2000 seat Downtown Cary Park Amphitheater. I love any opportunity to collaborate with the amazing presenters who host us to develop and curate an amazing season of jazz programming featuring renowned artists from around the world. I enjoy the logistics and operational side of running the Icons of Jazz Concert Series as much as I enjoy walking on the stage to perform each show. 

As the series musical director, I'm responsible for coordinating all the musical material our featured artist performs for each show. From the band instrumentation to the song arrangements, I personally ensure that each show is crafted and executed at the highest level. With headline performances at The Kennedy Center in DC, Lincoln Center NYC, Birdland, and major jazz festivals globally, I bring the same level of performance expectations to your stage, playing either piano or vibraphone, and leading an amazing supportive trio for our award winning artists as they celebrate the iconic names in jazz.
