"The Bay Area's Jazz Station"
Music, particularly Jazz, is a cornerstone in my life. As a saxophonist, I've toured the country and have played with some of the San Francisco Bay Area's best and brightest. Meeting former KJAZ host Bob Parlocha in a big band brought a turning point: The jazz radio legend invited me to become his intern. Bob mentored me in the craft and art of producing a jazz radio program.
Whether the "making of the music" is happening on the radio or on the stage, I bring, in some way, the influences of every teacher I've ever had: Frank Morgan, Anthony Braxton, Art Lande,Victor Morosco, and Bob Parlocha. Like the music I love, I believe there is a lineage here that I "play" forward and, hopefully, add to. Being on the airwaves at KCSM and sharing that bandstand with our great announcers is something that I am extremely proud of and grateful for: I love sharing the sounds of surprise + beauty with all.
