BIO

Starting at a young age on flute (a gift from my musician grandfather),
I have played baritone sax for the good part of my life. When my daughter was born, I added bass clarinet, it seemed like a nice way to play softly and not wake her up! And, as for most musicians, piano and guitar have always been at arms length.

Whether it is improvising an instantaneous composition or inscribing and arranging ideas as scores, I have yielded and contributed to many a project. From creating soundtracks to producing records, from studio sessions to concerts, my life continues to be succession of beautiful encounters and, what I would like to believe, curative music.

One day, as life would have it, I got a call to audition for a role in a feature film. They were looking for an actor/saxophonist. Since, I have pursued acting and set forth on a path leading to new discoveries.

It’s all about story telling anyway!

This website outlines some of the projects I’ve done, the shining new ones and some coming up…
