Album Notes
I am the tuba and euphonium professor at Louisiana State University. This is my first solo CD. You can find out a lot more about me at

Currently I enjoy a satisfying career as a soloist and chamber musician that allows me to explore numerous genres and styles in interesting venues throughout the world.

Prior to my engagement at Louisiana State University, I have been a principal tubist in several American orchestras, and I continue to perform with touring ensembles across the United States and Europe. Additionally, I have presented solo performances on four continents. Some locations where I have performed and/or taught include Brazil, Germany, Italy, Ireland, France, Denmark, Japan, China, Sweden, Finland, Russia, and numerous locations throughout the United States. I have been a finalist and winner in both American and International solo competitions, including winning first prize at the prestigious 1997 Leonard Falcone International Euphonium and Tuba festival.

As a Fulbright Scholar, I studied in Stockholm, Sweden at the Kungliga Musikhögskolan with the renowned tubist Michael Lind. While in Sweden, I performed frequently with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Other groups with whom I have performed include The Galliard Brass Ensemble, Detroit Chamber Winds, Michigan Opera Theatre Orchestra, the Western Brass Quintet, the Tennessee Tech Tuba Ensemble, and Symphonia - an ensemble of the premiere artists and teachers of tuba and euphonium in the United States. My performances have been broadcast on America's National Public Radio and on Sweden's National Radio.
