After moving to LaCrosse, WI in 1986 I joined Grandad's Bluff and we had the good fortune of being the 1988 LOL District champs and competing in the 1988 International competition in San Antonio. In 1989 New Image formed and placed as high as 2nd in the LOL District and had many years of performing all over the tri-state area. New Image was probably best know for the "Little Kids" set.

Quest formed in early 2004 and won the District contest that same year. In 2005 and 2006 we placed in the Top 20 at the International competition.

Currently I'm singing Tenor with Vocality. We formed in February of 2007 and were fortunate to qualify for International and then win the District Contest that fall in Rochester.

Beth and I have been married since 1984 and have two daughters, Katie and Kristin. I am President of Unison Comfort Technologies, based in Minneapolis, MN.

My interest in music was evident early on singing with family around the piano and in church.
My true passion for performance developed as I became involved in the theatre and began to explore all types of musical styles. Whether choral, gospel, vocal jazz, theatre or barbershop I have always found a place to perform.
Offstage I am busy working at The Hartford as a Consultant
Outside of performing and working, I love to spend time with my wife Angela, traveling the globe and spending time with family and friends.
