My Story

I’m an SF Bay Area-based saxophonist, producer, composer and certified yoga instructor. I’ve performed and recorded with many wonderful artists including actor/musician Jeff Goldblum, K. D. Lang, The Jets, Olivia Newton John, and Killy. As a producer and composer, I have had music included in movies, national TV commercials, industrials and on numerous albums.

My boutique production companies – Groove Tonic Media and Executive Branch Productions – help talented artists realize their creative artistic recording potential. I’m profoundly interested in all aspects of creativity, in what makes us tick as both individuals and as artists, and in how to lead a life of success and happiness in the modern world.

“Characterized by cohesive improvisation and filled with the spirit of hip-hop rhythms and a groove-based approach, the music surges with a mesmerizing power and charms accordingly.”

Featured Music

The featured music is my new song Secrets.
It was a big step personally to include some of my own vocals 😀 The story is about being in close relationship with your partner and wanting to know as much as you can about them in these times of isolation.
