MUS 1132-3332: Studio Trombone and Euphonium
MUS 2557G: The Evolution of Jazz and Rock
I am an active professional performer as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber and orchestral musician. I enjoy working with colleagues in and around greater Chicagoland and Northern Illinois. In the summer I perform with the Breckenridge Music Festival in Colorado. I am enjoying getting to know my studio of fine trombone and euphonium players and making music with the Eastern Faculty Brass Quintet.
I enjoy biking, hiking, skiing, hanging out with my family and our Golden Retriever/Lab mix Portia. I also enjoy reading and watching science fiction and I am addicted to most HBO series, especially "Entourage," "True Blood," "In Treatment," and "Big Love." I'm going through sci-fi withdrawal as "Battlestar Gallactica" has wrapped up and there is currently no "Star Trek" serial running.

My personal interests include hiking with my partner Marko and our cantankerous dog Mirrhi, lounging around with our two cats Ceniza and Carlos, and attending differenct fitness classes (especially Zumba fitness, which I am certified to teach).
