Welcome to my site. Having been involved in jazz since the age of fourteen (that goes back a few years) it is really exciting to see this art form continue to capture the hearts and minds of folks all over the world. And to think that it all started in our little corner of the world makes me especially proud to be an American. I am the Director of Jazz Studies at Pasadena City College where I oversee a large and diversified department. I feel very fortunate to be actively involved in the best of both worlds – performing and teaching America’s art form – JAZZ!
