I am a Pastor and I currently I serve Messiah Lutheran Church, Swartz Creek & King of Glory Lutheran, Flushing Prior to being a pastor, I was a math/science teacher in the Columbus Public Schools [Columbus, OH] and the vice president and controller of The Ohio State Bank in Columbus, OH.

Music has always been of great interest to me. Other interests include traveling, reading, sewing and crafts.

My travels have taken me to the Holy Land, Europe and various places in the USA.

I enjoy reading especially theology, historical fiction, and mysteries. In addition, I enjoy the great courses from The Teaching Compnay.

Beside sewing, the crafts I enjoy include counted cross stitch, knitting, and plastic canvas.

I am new this year (2016).
I sang in my high school and college choirs from 1990-1994. I took a long break and then began performing musicals with my local theatre around 2000; which led to singing solos at church/events and joining a classic country band.

Service Parts Coordinator at Toyo Seat USA

I am married with two kids that keep me busy.  My daughter plays trumpet with the sixth grade band and my son is very active in varsity sports; specifically football and wrestling.  When I get time I enjoy walking our two dogs and crafts, like sewing and jewelry making.

Tenor
First yr 2017
My Bachelor's degree is in music education from Syracuse University. I have a Master of Music degree in composition from the University of Michigan. My last teaching position was as an instructor in music history and composition at the Interlochen Arts Academy. I am a published composer, (member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, andPublishers), harpsichord maker, church organist and Registered Piano Tuner-Technician. I have conducted choirs in Pennsylvania and Michigan. For me, the Lapeer County Concert Choir is a "Goldilocks" for me. The most recent choirs I have sung with are the Apollo Chorus of Chicago which is too big; the last church choir in which I sang was too small, but Concert Choir is just right!

Builds Harpsichords - http://vernonharpsichords.com/

I currently live a quiet life in Deerfield Township where my harpsichord shop is located and spend my time making and restoring harpsichords, composing, and reading my way through my rather extensive library. (When I am not making harpsichords in my shop, I am making book cases!)

I am divorced, but am the proud father of four children; Joy, Holly, Marian and Jonathan. My kids are scattered all over the country.
 
In my spare time I make and throw boomerangs and work out using patterns from Tai Kwon Do in which I have a first degree black belt. I also enjoy canoeing, camping and fly fishing.

Love to be at the beach stand-up paddle boarding, playing Wobaba ball, boogie boarding, boating, Petoskey stone hunting, or floating in the water.
