Conductor Composer Music Educator 


Here you will find information about my work as Director of Choral Activities and conductor of the Choir of the West and Choral Union at Pacific Lutheran University.  My compositions and arrangements can be viewed and recordings are available for reference.  Works that I self publish, including Mass for a New Millennium, can be purchased here using PayPal.  For those needing biographical information for programs, I have made both brief and extended bios available, as well as jpeg and tiff photos.  I hope you find the webpage helpful--please contact me if you need further information!
