The Trumpeting Life

I’ve been playing trumpet since I was nine years old, and haven’t looked back.

“The Commandant’s Own”

For a brief period of time from 2013 to 2015, I was in the U.S. Marine Corps as a MOS 5512 Bugler with “The Commandant’s Own” U.S. Marine Drum & Bugle Corps in Washington, D.C. Click the button to see this DCI show I was in.

LoFi Trumpet Guy

During the COVID-19 pandemic, like a lot of other musicians, I decided to start streaming online to keep my creative juices flowing. Today, I have a slowly-growing channel of fans who want to chill and listen to me improvise over lofi music.

Maller Brass

I met David Maller – the owner of Maller Baroque Brass Instruments – playing for a Christmas concert in 2019 with the Altoona Symphony Orchestra in Altoona, PA. Since then, I’ve become an apprentice to the art of brass instrument making.
