Now in production: My first recording as leader, an album of all original music featuring drummer Mark Walker of the seminal jazz group Oregon and bassist and 13-time Grammy winner Steve Rodby of the legendary Pat Metheny Group. This is completely different from anything I’ve done before, and I can’t wait to share it with you! Sign up for my newsletter for upates.

The pandemic has forced me to put this on hold, but I’ll resume as soon as possible.

I’m a pianist, composer, producer and music educator based in Oakland, CA. I’ve performed and recorded with internationally-known musicians including contemporary jazz composer and guitarist Ray Obiedo and Latin jazz legend Pete Escovedo.

Listen to and purchase downloads of my recordings with Tanaóra (Brazilian and Latin jazz) and La Moderna Tradición (Afro-Cuban charanga). In addition to playing piano, I co-produced these albums.

Also check out these unreleased solo piano improvisations.
