(6/12/2024): Tonight I will be performing at the Dallas Arboretum as part of their Concerts in the Garden series. This members-only event allows guests to bring picnics and chairs and enjoy wonderful music in various gardens throughout the park. I will also be performing this weekend at The Vault (Friday evening) in Mansfield and at Inspirations Fork and Table in Arlington (Saturday).

(6/4/2024): This week I'll be performing at the Dallas Arboretum on 6/5 at 6:00pm as part of their Garden of Music series. I will also be there on June 12 and June 26 at 6:00pm. If you can't make it to the Arboretum, I'll be performing at The Vault in Mansfield on 6/14 from 7:00-11:00 and 6/15 at Inspirations Fork and Table in Arlington.

(5/5/2024): My new album The Lighter Side is now available on all streaming and digital platforms. I am thrilled to have finally released this project. Many of these songs were written over a decade ago, but for various reasons I've only just now gotten around to recording them. I hope you will check it out; I think you will like these tunes! Here is the entire album on YouTube:

(4/5/2024): The Lighter Side is out! Well, sort of. I have finished recording, mixing, and mastering the project, and I have submitted it to my digital distributor. The tunes should show up in Spotify, iTunes, etc. in a week or so. Meanwhile, I am releasing one video at a time on YouTube. The first video I am releasing is the title track to the album - The Lighter Side. Enjoy!

(3/15/2024): Tonight and tomorrow night I will be at Inspirations Fork and Table in Arlington. The food is always fabulous, and I can guarantee the music will be too! Come out for a great evening of food and piano music.

(3/9/2024): Unfortunately, our performance at The Lot in Mansfield was cancelled last night due to a power outage. However, I will be playing solo on Sunday March 10 for art gallery night at 210 S. Main St. in Mansfield from 6 - 8pm. If you're around, it will be a wonderful evening of art and music. I will also be performing a concert this Wednesday (March 13) from 6 - 8pm at the Dallas Arboretum. It is a member-only event, so if you are a member of the Arboretum, come spend a lovely evening in the gardens!

(2/24/2024): Tonight I will be performing once again at the ever-delightful eatery Inspirations Fork and Table in downtown Arlington. If you plan to come out, I recommend calling ahead at 682-270-8352 to make a reservation. I will be playing there again next Friday and Saturday nights as well, so if you can't make it this weekend, plan ahead for next week!

I also want to give everyone a heads up that I am currently working on my 4th studio album. I hope to release it this summer. It will be full of all new music that I have written over the past 10 or so years, and I think you will enjoy it! I'll try to keep everyone posted about updates as I go.

(2/12/2024):Happy Valentine's Day! If you are in the Arlington area, I will be performing Valentine's evening at Inspirations Fork and Table. If you have never been, it's a wonderful family-owned venue with scrumptuous scratch cooking. It is a small venue, so if you plan to come, be sure to call ahead for reservations. If you can't make it Valentine's Day, come see me this weekend! I'll be at the same place Friday and Saturday evenings.

(1/24/2024): I hope everyone is off to a good start in the new year. It's hard to believe we are quickly closing out month number one!

Last weekend I had the privilege of performing at Inspirations Fork and Table in Arlington. I have a private performance this week, so I will not be playing at any of my typical public locations. For those of you looking to catch me soon, my next public performances will be Feb 2 and Feb 3 at Inspirations in Arlington.

(12/18/2023): Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! As we wind down 2023, I'd like to thank everyone for another fantastic year of making good music! As always, I appreciate the support and love of music lovers everywhere. December has been busy performing for various restaurants and parties, and 2024 looks to be another fun year of music making. You can see me perform this weekend on Friday evening at Inspirations Fork and Table in Arlington from 5:30 - 9:00pm and again on Sunday morning in the lobby at Gateway Church Plano from 8:30-12:30.
