I attended Central State University in Ohio where I received my Bachelor in Music degree and later earned a Masters in Music for classical bass from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music. After graduation, I moved to New York City where I worked as a professional bassist and studied with the late David Walters, distinguished professor of double bass at both the Juilliard and Manhattan schools of music.

During the last 20+ years, I've worked as an IT Project Management consultant and earned the PfMP, PMP, MCSE, MCTS, CQIA, COBIT Foundation, and ITIL foundation certifications increasing productivity in the workplace for his clients.
