He has thus far shared the stage with many of Canada’s finest jazz musicians such as Pat LaBarbera and PJ Perry and has performed in some of Toronto’s finest big bands such as the Alex Dean Jazz Orchestra and Mike Malone Jazz Orchestra. With the last year of his undergraduate degree under way, he’s amassed a wide variety of performance experience in a wide variety of ensembles, such as concert bands, pit orchestras, small and large jazz ensembles as well as pop/commercial bands. His array of experiences has earned him the reputation of being a versatile player, capable of taking command of any musical situation.
