Choir, Kodály Music & Church Media

Personal Profile

As far as I can remember

Music has always been my first love. I love choral music, Kodály music education, and piano/organ music.

I am a "jack of all trades and a master of none", as the saying goes. I dabble in many areas and have always been this way as long as I can remember.

Personal Interests

When not making music or working in media:

  • I'm relaxing with my wife and five children.
  • I love football & basketball
  • I enjoy all things Sherlock Holmes;
  • All music by Scott Joplin.
  • I am a pilot and enjoy following aviation;
  • I am active in my church's deaf ministry as a sign language interpreter.

The InterWEB is vast

Being in media and design requires more than a cursory familiarity with events and design trends. I am visible in a few of the more popular social networking sites here:
