I graduated from Indiana University's School of Music with a Bachelor in Music Education and a Master of Science in Education. I have been married to Tracy for 35 years and we have four wonderful children; Heidi, Heather, Eric and Katie (Miss America, 2009). We have four fine in-laws and eight grand children. I love teaching students how to sing and enjoy performing music. As a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Seymour I sing in the choir. My wife is a fifth grade teacher in Immanuel's school. I love sports, living in the country and spending time with my family and friends.
