Three
Ensemble Three is an innovative new chamber ensemble, exploring new textures and sonorities by combining trumpet, trombone, and guitar with live electronics and soundscapes.

Three has commissioned numerous composers in Australia and abroad, and has benefitted by multiple commission grants from the Australia Council for the Arts. Their first album, available in early 2015, features pieces by Andrew Batterham, Katy Abbott, Christian O'Brien, Percy Grainger, and Ken Murray.

A unique practice tool for trumpet players that helps build confidence, efficiency, and consistency. Stop fussing with your embouchure so you can focus on whats important - the music.

Reveille Trumpet Collective
Reveille is a collective dedicated to exploring new paths for trumpet while connecting performers, composers and audiences in innovative ways. We use commissions and premieres as starting points: opportunities for composers to communicate directly with audiences worldwide, for audiences to interact with artists, and for performers to gain intriguing glimpses into new repertoire.

The collective sponsors an annual Composition Prize that receives submissions from all over the world.

Fulbright Project
Jasper Johns-style Dutch Flag
Jasper Johns 'US Flag'
I was awarded a Fulbright Grant to travel to the Netherlands in 2007/2008. Sponsored by the Fulbright Center, Netherland-America Foundation and the Institute of International Education, this grant allowed me to take residence in the Netherlands for one year to engage in a project focusing on contemporary music by American and Dutch composers.
During my time in Holland, I worked closely with Arto Hoornweg (Rotterdam Philharmonic, Utrecht Conservatory) who served as a teacher and advisor. I also became active in Holland's orchestral scene, performing with the Rotterdam Philharmonic, Amsterdam Symphony, Orkest van het Oosten and Joop van den Ende's production of Ciske de Rat.
