A native of Geneva, Illinois, he received his B.Mus. in piano performance from DePaul University and his M.Mus. in piano performance and pedagogy from Northwestern University. He is an accompanist for the studio of Joanne Bozeman at Lawrence Conservatory of Music and is a member of WMTA. He lives in Appleton with his wife and three cats and is an avid gamer.

"I have a casual but focused teaching style. Parents are welcome, but not required to sit in on lessons. Students have a voice in choosing in repertoire. Reading is taught mostly by interval. Students are encouraged to perform as often as possible."
