I am a retired adjunct professor of guitar and guitar related courses at Kenyon College, Mt. Vernon Nazarene University and the Richland Academy in Mansfield, Ohio.

My musical passion has always been creating arrangements for solo finger style guitar. I find the creative challenge very rewarding. You learn so much in the process.

I started playing guitar in the 60's, like many kids did, after hearing The Beatles! Before that, I played the piano and ukulele. My mother and father were musicians. So, music was always being played at home.

I have been influenced by many guitarists and other instrumentalists in a variety of styles. I love the styles of Chet Atkins, Jerry Reed, Merle Travis, Tommy Emmanuel and a host of others. I also love listening to and playing as many styles as I can. I enjoy creating arrangements for any style or any song, really. However, I still consider myself a pop guitarist.
