Major career accomplishments:
I have been a trombonist with several symphony orchestras and bands and am currently playing with the Marion Philharmonic Orchestra and the Mississinewa Valley Band. I also enjoy playing at Church and singing in the Church Choir at Upland Community Church. Over the years I have taken the Taylor Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble on a variety of tours presenting concerts in both domestic and overseas locations. Each year, I serve the Indiana School Music Association and the Indiana Bandmasters Association as both an adjudicator and guest clinician for honors bands. In 1995 I was presented with the Distinguished Professor citation by the Taylor University Alumni Association.
