His career journey meandered through a stint in the Military in California and Maryland, many years in the Orient as a Chinese Mandarin linguist, many more years in the Washington, D.C. area as Operating Manager for a major corporation, and finally marriage at age 40 and permanent relocation to Tennessee as Vice President of a Financial Management company.

During all the while he pursued a music career with bands, in piano bars, and as a church organist for over 60 years.  He is now retired and just plays bridge (a Bronze Life Master in the ACBL), paints, and enjoys life.
