A little bit about me.

I started playing professionally at sixteen with Soundtrax, an Oak Forest, IL based party band. I played with them throughout my high school years, then continued on with them while attending Illinois Wesleyan University during my freshman year. After returning home for the holiday break, I was able to audition for the Stanley Paul Orchestra. I got the gig and began a ten year stretch with Stanley's band.

While with the Stanley Paul Orchestra, I was able to play all over the Chicagoland area. Some of the venues included The Four Seasons, The Drake, The Knickerbocker, The Hilton, and The Ritz-Carlton. I also traveled with them a bit, playing places like the Star Plaza Theater in Merrillville, IN, and The Georgian Terrace Hotel in Atlanta, GA.

After the long and successful run with Stanley's band, I played with several bands, including Pipe, Jin & Tonic, On the House, Nick Lynch & Silversmith, and The Connexion Band. Some of the venues I've played over the years include The House of Blues, Joe's Bar on Weed Street, Durty Nellies, The Venue at the Horseshoe Casino, Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, and The Signature Room in the Hancock building.

If you'd like to learn more, or hire me for your band/orchestra, event, or venue, please contact me.
