I was born in Youngstown and grew up in Campbell, Ohio. I graduated from Campbell Memorial High School and received a Bachelor of Music from the Dana School of Music at Youngstown State University. I received a Master of Music from the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. I went to Paris, France for further study and received a Licence de Concert from the École Normale de Musique de Paris. I am currently Titular Organist at Saint-Jean de Montmartre Church in Paris, France, as well as Professor of Harpsichord at the Conservatory of the 18th precinct in Paris.
