I was a member of Jubilate from 1979 through 1981, singing first under Carl Beard, in what was to be his last year, and then with interim director, Edmund Najera. I previously served on the Jubilate Alumni Board from July 2012 through June 2015, acting as Secretary and then President.
I found a home in Jubilate when University Singers didn’t want me due a lack of sight reading ability, proving that God truly has a plan. Jubilate cultivated my love of singing and helped me grow both musically and spiritually. When I look back on my years in Jubilate, I remember the great music, but treasure the fellowship.
I live in Baltimore with my wife, Barb. We have two children, Sarah (26) and Ben (19) and we worship at Grace United Methodist Church, where both Barb and I sing in the choir. My ability to contribute to the offering plate comes from working at Baltimore Gas and Electric Company as the Manager, Customer Payment Operations. In my spare time, I also sing with the Johns Hopkins University Choral Society, a student and community choir, and am very involved with the Boy Scouts.
