He has also had the honor of sharing the stage with musicians such as Neal Smith, Tia Fuller, George Clinton, and Ber

For the past 14 years, I've refined my technique and musicianship while taking it upon myself to perfect the canon of musical literature that all of the masters before me have successfully confronted. The result of my labors is a string of successful performances, along with audience and critical acclaim.
