  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I strive to compensate my musicians (performance/session work) and my employees (studio/events) fairly and generously, and reflect that in my pricing. One of my missions is to help increase artist sustainability in the Tampa Bay Area, and one of the ways in which that is done is through supporting good musicians and performers through proper wages.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    In any project/performance opportunity, I always like to have either a phone or email conversation with the client outlining all of the details involved. This way, I can ensure that I deliver the best product possible, while also working with the client on any budget/logistical concerns they may have.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a classically trained musician with high scores in conventional Western Music Theory. I also have a very strong background in jazz music, theory, and performance. I have studied privately with the likes of John Lamb (Duke Ellington, Red Garland, etc.) and Butch Thomas (Sting, Lenny Kravitz, etc.).
