Anglo-American sax and flute player who has lived in the UK for over 20 years and has built up a great reputation for the power and ‘visceral excitement’ in his playing.

A protégé of Marcus Printup (Lincoln Center Orchestra) I have come to develop a unique sound of my own that stands out in my many musical involvements.

I have featured  with artists like Kasabian, Lack of Afro, Haggis Horns, Nitin Sawhney, This is The Kit,  Mr Benn, Chris Monkey and  I’m at the forefront of popular Bristol bands  Phantom Ensemble,  Baila la Cumbia,  Dockside Latin Orchestra, Radio Banska and Dub From Atlantis to name a few.

I have also shared the stage with jazz greats including Wynton Marselis, Maceo Parker, Dr Lonnie Smith, John Faddis, Pee Wee Ellis, have featured on BBC Radio 4 “Loose Ends” and worked at world  renowned venues like Ronnie Scotts and The Blue Note in New York City.

Teaching Experience

As an educator I have been teaching for over 20 years with much of that time as assistant director of the highly acclaimed BlowoutSax School in Bath.

I have helped many of my students into world famous music programs including Trinity, Royal Academy, Royal Welsh, Leeds School Of Music and Chethams School Of Music.

As these young musicians have come out of further studies they have turned into working professional musicians in their own right!

I am one of Headwind‘s recommended saxophone teachers and I work closely with them to arrange equipment for my students when needed.

I’m also highly sought after for educational workshops and I continue to encourage and promote the jazz genre to young people.

Before I had lessons with Craig I questioned going to a university but he made me think twice, so I applied to Trinity College of Music.
