Location: Minnesota, USA
I have a Master’s Degree in Sacred Music, with an emphasis in choral conducting, from Luther Seminary/St. Olaf College. As part of that program, I studied with Paul Westermeyer, Anton Armstrong, Carolyn Jennings, John Ferguson and Robert and Cora Scholz. My Bachelor’s degree in vocal music is from Winona State University. I am co-creative director of InVocation, and have sung with a number of Minneapolis choirs, including the National Lutheran Choir, Summer Singers and Sacred Voice. By day, I work in External Relations at the University of Minnesota; after hours, I don my “Music Director” cape and head over to Lake Nokomis Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. I love to sing and to read (though not at the same time), and to take care of the home I share with my wife Rochelle and our beagles, Linus and Lucy.
