journey at the age of three but his love for jazz began
at the age of 11 when he started studying at the New

the fortunate opportunity to study with jazz greats such

passion for music at Rutgers University, Mason Gross
School of the Arts, where he received his B.A. in Jazz
Performance. While there he was able to study with world
class musicians Victor Lewis, Ralph Bowen and Conrad
Herwig to name a few.
