My Bio

I earned my degree in composition with primary study on tuba at the Eastman School of Music in 1985. Two years later, I was commissioned by the University of Vermont to compose a work for full orchestra in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Since moving to Washington, DC in 1988, I have performed with the Monumental Brass Quintet, the Takoma Park Symphony Orchestra, the Symphony of the Potomac, the Modern Brass Trio, Washington Musica Viva, the Silver Spring Brass, and the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra. For four years, beginning in 1990, I was the tuba instructor and a music theory teacher at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts. Currently, I am the tuba player and one of the resident composers in the Great Noise Ensemble, which features contemporary classical chamber music.
