After 40 years in senior management at Roadway Express and working as an independent buisiness consultant Pam and I retired back to Denver from NE Ohio. Thirteen years ago I reconnected with my “inner musician” and picked up a used trombone to relive my “glory days” on the bandstand. Before long I was playing in dance, community and show bands in NE Ohio and Denver. After relocating full time to Lake City in 2016 I continue to pursue my passion to bring live music to Lake City year round. When not making music I spend my time hiking and snowshoeing in the San Juan mountains.
