I have been ringing and directing handbells off and on for the past 20 years or so. I began ringing in a church choir (Gardner,KS), the “King’s Ringers”, with director Kipp Willnauer, followed by ringing
at college, in the Bethany College (Lindsborg, KS) Select Handbell Ensemble, with director Eunice Tarum. After a couple stints as handbell director at various churches, I currently ring in the Omaha-based group, the River City Ringers, with director Joyce Miller. Most recently I have re-discovered my passion for composing and I love it! My wife, Melissa, and I live in Red Oak, Iowa, with our family of rescued animals.
