I began singing when I was in high school, singing in my local church choir and high school chorale. Currently singing groups include the local senior centers men’s and combined chorus, the Livingston Lamplighters Barbershop Chorus, the Jesters Barbershop Quartet and the Beckridge Chorale.

I also play the trumpet and euphonium instruments.A great experience singing with the Jesters for me was when they asked me to become the baritone of the quartet.
