I was born in Orlando, Florida in 1948
I attended Winter Park High School.
I hold both a bachelor of music degree from Stetson University and a master of music from the State University of New York at Binghamton

In 1974, I founded the Audubon String Quartet and served as its cellist from 1974 - 2011
As a member of the Audubon Quartet, I have performed in Asia, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, Israel, Mexico, Turkey and entire United States.
Highlights of my quartet career include top prizes at international string competition 1977-79, a presidential invitation to perform at the White House in 1977, a featured profile of the Audubon Quartet on CBS Sunday Morning Show in 1977 and an invitation by the Chinese Ministry of Culture to be the first American string quartet to tour Mainland China in 1981-82.

Today, as a retired classical musician and university professor emeritus, I am currently living in Winchester, Virginia and am involved in genealogical research, cleaning up my personal studio and sorting through years of old teaching files. I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel!
I enjoy and treasure my darling wife, Doris and my three sons Alex, Jeremiah and Frank, and two grandsons Ajai and Makailin.
