Welcome to my website! I am a jazz pianist and have been performing, arranging, composing and recording in the Pittsburgh area as well as other areas of the country since 1975. I have traveled extensively as a performer and lived in a variety of locations during my career. Currently I make my home in Pittsburgh and perform with many different bands in the area as well as with artists who pick up bands when they come through Pittsburgh on tour.
I am also am a multimedia developer in my other life. I shoot and edit video, do graphic design, website development and photography, but music is my passion and spiritual center. I feel blessed to be a part of the incredible Pittsburgh music scene. Pittsburgh has an extremely rich music tradition and I humbly hope that I can live up to that legacy.
I am honored to be a member of Roger Humphries and RH Factor. Roger is a living part of the Pittsburgh legacy and one of the best drummers and musicians in jazz today. RH Factor is an incredible group that plays music in the tradition of the “Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers”, with an updated twist.
