I've been a Barbershopper since 1978, getting my start in the Far Western District. I attended Harmony College three times and taught at numerous District-level schools during my tenure in the FWD.
I directed the Santa Barbara, CA, chapter for 11 years, finishing 5th in the District three times. I sang tenor with the popular show quartet, Santa Barbara Sound, and then lead with the International quarter-finalist, Swingtime, before moving to Oregon in 1997. I directed the Eugene, OR chapter for three years and sang baritone with Legacy, who finished 2nd at District in 1998, before moving to Minnesota in 2000 to join Excalibur. I competed with Excalibur four times at International, finishing as high as 7th in 2003 and 2004. My first District championship quartet was Quest, who won the LOL District in 2005, and finished as high as 19th at International. X-factor won the District in 2008 and finished 23rd at International. GQ won the LOL championship in 2011, and competed at International 3 times. From 2001-2008, I directed the City of Lakes Sweet Adeline chorus, and became a Master Director in 2007.
I currently sing with Suit Up! and the A Cappella Syndicate in the FWD.
I have arranged about 200 songs in the Barbershop style, and coach a wide variety of choruses and quartets around the country.
When I'm not Barbershopping or playing poker, I work as a Data Analyst in Phoenix, AZ.

I began singing in barbershop quartets and choruses in high school. Throughout the years I have sung in the Rochester, Allbert Lea, and Hilltop, MN chapters and the Louisville Metro, KY, chapter. I have sung in a number of quartets including Quest and X-factor. I have two AWESOME kids, Joshua and Julia, who I love to have along with me at barbershop events. I live in Rochester and work for Mayo Clinic as a counselor and also teach at the local community college.
