I have had a never-ending love affair with music. My earliest childhood memories are of trying to play everything I heard on the piano, which included classical and jazz music. My formal education began at the Harlem School of the Arts, where I studied with Dr. Armenta Adams a concerto winner of Juilliard School of Music who studied with world renowned pianist Sascha Gorodnitzki .
I then went on to continue my education at Manhattan School of Music and the Leonard Davis Center for the Performing Arts where I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Jazz Piano Performance. I continued my education earning a MM in Piano Performance at Florida International University studying with world-renowned international pianist Kemal Gekic.
I have participated in master piano classes with legendary pianists, Awadagin Pratt, Dr. Kenneth Cooper, Dr. Georffrey Burleson, John Lewis and Norman Simmons. I have also had the pleasure of studying jazz improvisation and performing with Maestro Nestor Torres and the illustrious Ron Carter. Each one of these legendary and brilliant musicians helped to bring out what I feel is a rare combination of exceptional technical skills, musical sensitivity and a passionate release of raw emotions.
I have performed, recorded and taught in the NY/Tristate area, Canada, Florida, South America and the Caribbean.
