First of all, thank you for taking a moment to visit my Patreon page. I have been privileged enough to enjoy a twenty-five year career as a trumpeter and have been fortunate enough to have made a number of CDs. My current project - A Little Trumpet music - is was releases in June of 2018 and features a number of recordings that were made while I was studying for my master's and subsequently doctorate in jazz performance at the University of Illinois. Whilst at the U of I, i was fortunate enough to study with two inspirational trumpet tutors, Tito Carillo and Ronald Romm.

I moved to New Orleans in late 2015 and slowly began to get to know a few musicians and slowly started to pick up some gigs. Unfortunately, in October 2016, I ran into a pot hole on my bicycle and was thrown over my handlebars which resulted in my putting my upper tooth through my lower lip, clearly not the best body modification a trumpeter might choose to visit upon themselves. Whilst the injury healed, it did leave a sizeable scar on my inner lip and essentially I had to learn to play the trumpet again from scratch. I feel blessed to have studied with Tito and Ron, because they had instilled in me the patience needed to learn to play the trumpet and gradually, over the course of several months I began to build up my chops to the point where I could play once again.

Eventually, I took to the streets of New Orleans and began to perform. Slowly, over the course of six or eight months, my playing began to improve and I now feel that I am once again performing at a level that I can be proud of. I have started a trio ( occasionally it expands to a quartet) and have gradually begun to pick up some gigs around the city. My goal now is to release a CD that reflects the new direction that my music and compositions have taken since moving to this unique and inspiring city.

My first goal is to create a CD of New Orleans and New Orleans inspired music - both standards and my own compositions - that adequately reflect my growth as a musician since moving to this wonderful city. I have the modest aim of being able to pay the musicians I work with session fees, recording, mixing and artwork costs and an initial run of 200 or so CDs.
