A brief bio

I started playing trumpet at the age of 11 and I never looked back.  From playing in Tejano bands in middle school and then on to jazz groups and wedding bands in high school, I went on to tour with various big bands and took my very first tour of the world at 18 with the Russ Morgan Orchestra, under the leadership of his son Jack Morgan.  Some of the big bands I've toured with have been, the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Hoagy Carmichael 100th anniversary big band as well as toured with one off tours with John Pizzarelli and Maureen McGovern.  Most of my road life, I spent touring as a singer and trumpeter for The Four Freshmen.  I spent 15 years and loved it. What great music!!  

 

I currently play and record now in south Texas with my own latin band and various other small groups and a private party band.  I'm also a Schilke Artist use their horns and mouthpieces exclusively.  I play on a Schilke Trumpet Model B6LGP, Model FL-GP Flugelhorn, and Model XA1GP Cornet.
