 I am honored to have studied jazz and saxophone under my mentor, Jackie McLean, at the Hartt School of Music.  Our saxophone class included Jimmy Greene, Wayne Escoffery, Chris Allen and Julius Tolentino, all incredibly gifted musicians.                                                  

In addition to playing at numerous venues around Connecticut and the Northeast with the Peter Greenfogel Jazz Group, and performing with Simply Swing, New England's premiere swing orchestra,  I work as a faculty assistant in the Jazz Studies Department at Hartt and as an instructor of Music Theory, saxophone, clarinet, piano  and the Youth Jazz Orchestra at the Artists Collective, an interdisciplinary arts and cultural center founded by Jackie and Dollie McLean.                                                                                                                 

 I am very lucky to have been given the opportunity to play alongside of many of today's most well-known jazz artists including Steve Davis, Nat Reeves, Jonathan JB Barber and  Dezron Douglas, and to accompany such wonderful singers as Linda Ransom, Alexis Roy, Atla DeChamplain  and the KC Sisters.  The Peter Greenfogel Jazz Group includes incredibly talented musicians and friends Stephen King Porter, Chris Casey, Ben Bilello, Mary Davis, Jennifer Allen, Matt DeChamplain, Tido Holtkamp, and Keith Gibson.
