He has worked with the Doobie Brothers and the Milwaukee Symphony, arranging and conducting the combined group for Harley Davidson’s 100th Anniversary Birthday Party Finale. He also arranged and produced the music for the 2013 Thanksgiving Day halftime show between the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.
