For nearly a decade I have been active in the shooting sports. Many have come to know me through our show GunStuff TV which you can watch on Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Prime and RNTV. You can watch our weekly streaming show Thursdays at 2pm ET on Rumble, Facebook, Twitter, and support our show with shooting sports purchases on GunStuff.tv. This grew out of my award-winning work as a cinematographer.
Many might not know of my background in music. Originally from Akron, Ohio I began my undergraduate studies at the University of Akron and finished at the University of Kentucky School of Music. I moved to the Cincinnati area where I was married and earned my Master of Music at University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. My influential teachers were Bill Adam, Arnold Jacobs, Mel Broiles, and Eugene Blee. To each I owe much. I was privileged to teach at Xavier University, Northern Kentucky University, Transylvania University and Asbury University.
I am the founder of The Queen City Brass. As well as playing trumpet for the group I write most of the music. I spent twenty years as principal trumpet of the Kentucky Symphony, and ten with the Butler Philharmonic. During those years I played and recorded with the Cincinnati Symphony, Cincinnati Opera, and Cincinnati Pops. It was my privilege to play with Doc Severinsen, Ray Charles, and countless big name opera stars. I love choral music and spent 20 years with Dr. Helmut Roehrig’s Musica Sacra orchestra.
