Justin Varnes, Brett Belanger and I had a blast opening up for the great carl Allen at the Cola Jazz Fest on 9/24/2022
I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my quartet regularly.
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.
I've played this arrangement of Wild World by Cat Stevens at my gigs for years and thought it would be a really fun thing to share with my YouTube community. Plenty of triplets, a funk(fish) groove, and a lot of fun. I hope you dig it.

Extended jazz piano and a little vocal improv practice over the Joe Henderson classic “Recorda Me.”
Sometimes I try and see if I can sing a song with no accompaniment and cover all of the harmony myself. This idea follows the example of Bobby McFerrin on his famous “Blackbird” performances - those recordings changed me in many ways and I love the challenge.
