I am a student of the late Stanley Hasty, and received a Bachelor's in Performance from the Eastman School of Music. I studied with Frank Kowalsky at Florida State where I received a Master's in Performance. I have also studied with Mitchell Lurie, James Campbell, Peter Hadcock. I was clarinetist with the Florida Philharmonic and Miami Opera for several years I have also performed with the Baltimore Symphony, Pasadena Symphony, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, and others. I have performed with chamber music groups in Europe, toured Brazil as soloist, and been a part of the Spoleto Festival in Italy. I have taught all ages and levels - from children to adults at universities, community colleges, arts high schools, and public schools. I have also been a band director for 20 years. I am currently on the faculty of UC Riverside and Chaffey College in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, teaching clarinet. I find chamber music very gratifying and would love to help with ACMP's mission.
