About Me

I am currently a Professor of Music and Coordinator of the Music Program at Northern Essex Community Collegein Haverhill, Massachusetts where I teach all levels of music theory and aural skills as well as classes in music performance, and other courses. For more information about those classes click here.

Before teaching at NECC, I was the full-time Director of Music and Arts at the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (ERUUF) in Durham, North Carolina, where I directed several choirs and lead musical and artistic events at the Fellowship.

Previous teaching experience includes being the Chair of the Fine and Performing Arts Department at Lyndon State College in Vermont and the Head of the Music Department at Waycross College in Georgia.

I received a Bachelors of Music Education at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia and a Masters of Music at Radford University in Radford Virginia. I also went on to receive a Ph.D. in music theory and composition at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio.

I remain active as a composer, singer, director, teacher, and writer.
