I've been involved leading and playing in many sorts of music groups since I was 15 years old. I am now, happily, organist at SPC. I served as Band Director at Eisenhower Middle School for 32 years, until my retirement in 2005. I have also played in Big Bands, Rock and Roll bands, Country bands, Brass Fusion, and high-end restaurant entertainment groups.
My degree is from the University of Wisconsin. I've been married to Alice since 1987, and we have five children and six grandchildren between us. Besides music, I am an avid woodworker, specializing in china cabinets and custom frames.
