I am a 1976 graduate of the College-Conservatory of Music at the University
of Cincinnati, with studies in piano, organ, and composition. I began my harp studies a bit later in life with the then-chair
of the Conservatory's harp department, Ulrike Brinksmeier. I have worked in church music as an organist and choir director
since 1970. I have handbell music published by the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers, and have written choir anthems
on commission for churches in New York, Ohio, Florida, and Georgia.
In 2004 I relocated to St. Louis and currently
reside in Benton Park, near Soulard.
