Academic Title

Director, Bands


M.M., New England Conservatory B.M., University of North Texas


I bring a diverse palate of musical experience to my job as director of the Merrimack College Pep Band. I have performed or worked with such notable musicians as Jerry Bergonzi, Bob Moses, Bob Brookmeyer, George Garzone, Dave Holland, Robin Eubanks, Lee Konitz, Sam Rivers and George Russell, to name just a few. I have a deep knowledge of the history of the American drummer, which I share with my percussion students at the college. At the Merrimack College Summer Jazz Workshop, I direct ensembles, teach classes on jazz history and styles, and instruct all drum and percussion students.
