I am a professional fiddle player, jazz violinist, and composer.

I won the Arizona State Grand Fiddle Championship and the Arizona State Guitar Accompanist Championship in 1990. I’ve been a featured soloist with The Phoenix Symphony, fiddled at Planet Hollywood in Paris, gigged at Disneyland in Paris, received standing ovations at jazz festivals across America, entertained at country music festivals throughout Europe, improvised for seasoned jazz crowds at The Nash in Phoenix, worked as a rock violinist on Sunset Strip in Hollywood, enjoyed a brief stint as a strolling violinist on a cruise ship to Ensenada, and played thousands of gigs in my home state of Arizona.

I also teach at fiddle camps and was adjunct facility at Grand Canyon University.

I have a Bachelor of Music in Theory and Composition, a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Violin Performance, and a Master of Liberal Studies.
