grade, still playing trumpet the on
the side in multiple jazz ensembles.
He was formerly enrolled in Dulles
High school, where he participated
in the top band and the full orchestra

Dulles Jazz Band (a creation of his
persistent suggestion), and a brief
attendance of the top choir as a Bass

attending performances of the
Houston Symphony whenever he can.
He wishes to one day master the pipe
organ, direct a group of his own, and
bring jazz horn into the spotlight.
