He lived and performed in Los Angeles, Dallas, Boston, and Japan, before establishing Chicago as his home in 1990. He is a coleader of Sabertooth, which has been the mainstay band at the Green Mill Lounge each Saturday night since 1992. He is also heard around Chicago performing with the Bobby Lewis Quintet, Art Hoyle Quintet, and the Pat Mallinger Quartet, to name a few.
