about me

Since moving from Canada to Germany, i’ve performed with many professional orchestras and chamber music ensembles, various contemporary-music 
and jazz groups as well as leading my own musical projects, 
gathering valuable musical experiences along the way. 

Until recently, i held the position of instructor for big band and combos at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold, Germany. 
during extensive travels with my family in 2021/22, i felt the surfacing 
of a strong desire to take a clear step towards fulfilling my own artistic goals, 
as opposed to the goals of others. 
at that point, i gave up my teaching position and started to follow a new path in improvisation and experimentation.

I have always felt most at home playing jazz and improvised music and have always admired those musicians who have followed their own inner voice. i now choose to follow my own intuition and in so doing look forward to 
meeting new musical friends and new friends of music.

I am a Conn-Selmer artist and perform on the Vincent Bach 12 (1963 Mt. Vernon), Conn 88H and Conn 72H trombones. 

Here are some of the ensembles/institutions I‘ve been affiliated with:
