Vibrations: A Life Within Florida's Music Communities

"Nearly a decade ago, I settled down here in central Florida to continue my life’s work as a busy musician/educator. It's been my good fortune to collaborate on an amazing variety of performances and recordings with literally hundreds of talented artists in concert venues, festivals, and studios throughout this region. I've been nourished and sustained by unique musical experiences shared within these generous communities of inspiration and encouragement."

Concert Performances have included:
Nature Coast Friends of Blues, Jazz at Silver Springs, Downhome Jazz Festival, Jacksonville Beach Jazz Series, Appalachee Blues Society, Tioga Summer Concert Series, Florida Folk Festival, Central Florida Symphony Orchestra, Havana Arts Festival, and Jacksonville Landing concerts; Silver Springs Park and other concert openers; featured shows at Tampa's Daddy Wiggler Blues Club, Saint Augustine's San Sebastian Winery, Tallahassee's Mickee Faust Cabaret; as well as numerous other college concerts and music festivals throughout the region.
