Shelley Carroll My biggest mentor. Saxophonist/Vocalist of the Duke Ellington Band. You'll see us playing together in Japan every January! 
Piano / Keyboards
Dan Haerle Previous jazz piano professor at North Texas. He was like a father to me in my Denton years. Learning from him was inspiring philosophically as well as musically. 
Tomo Takahashi I met this crazy guy at the famous G.I.T. in L.A. in the summer of 1997, and have been great friends for more than ten years. A wild hard rocker! 
Craig Butterfield My closest collaborator at North Texas. A very achieved bassist who tours with Maynard Ferguson I still don't get how this guy excels in both jazz and classical worlds. "Santory Times" (lol)
Jeff Curry An old Dentonian friend who helped me launch my first electric project. Now happily married and living in Japan. 
Rodrigo Villanueva Super drummer from Mexico City who played and recorded in my trio. Nobody plays samba like Rodrigo! Currently teaching at Northern Illinois.
Myles Wright My dear friend and fellow composer. We met at Henry Mancini Institute, and have since been great buddies. Now teaching in Malaysia.
