I joined St. Veronica Parish as Director of Parish Music in the summer of 2013, having previously been Pastoral Associate of Liturgy and Music at St. Bartholomew Parish. I'm originally from Napa, CA, and graduated from Indiana University in Music Performance. I am also the Director of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians' Chapter of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, serve on our Archdiocesan Music Committee, and a member of the American Guild of Organists Cincinnati Chapter. Before taking up liturgical music as my life's pursuit, I was an orchestral musician who held posts with the San Francisco Symphony, the San Francisco Opera and the Buffalo Philharmonic. I live in Springfield Township with my wonderful wife Janet and stepdaughter Elena.
