Study at University Of North Texas in jazz improvisation, classical composition and a love for pop music have provided a bottomless fountain of inspiration from which to drink the waters of passion and creation.

Traditional music includes operatic classics for The 4th Tenor and big band jazz for the TV series Army Wives.
