Whether you are looking for a dedicated jazz pianist for an intimate party, a cocktail pianist or someone to play a special song at your wedding, look no further.  I know how to make the occasion an incredibly special one.

I occasionally tour with an amazing bassist (Europe and beyond) + legendary alto saxophonist Lee Konitz.  I also team up with grammy award-winning violinist, Mads Tolling (of Turtle Island Quartet).  In 2006 we performed for the Prince and Princess Of Denmark at the Danish Embassy in Washington, D.C.  And in 2008, I performed at the Strathmore Center for an Eva Cassidy tribute concert for 2000 people.
