|I am a computer programmer, and a professional musician.
My musical life began very early. I began
piano lessons at the age of five! I studied classical piano throughout my
childhood. I started my first band in Junior High School - Stage Band. My love
was Rock 'N Roll - The Beatles, Chicago, Edgar Winter, Yes, Zeppelin and
Floyd. I even wrote original songs then!|
In high school, I discovered my other love - computers. I joined the Northeast High School Computer Club. There, I learned BASIC programming using nothing but a teletype! I worked long and hard on a Monopoly game program, which worked very well. I learned a great deal from that experience.
I attended Temple University, and graduated in August 1982. After graduation, I hooked up with my friend since Junior High Stage Band - Doug Evans. I joined his band "Blue Pearl" as a trio. We soon became a duo, and played that way for ten years as "The Harmonix" and "The Mix".
During all that time, I was a faithless soul. I got married in 1990. My ex-wife and my brother showed me the word of Jesus in January 1993, after my ex-wife had a near-fatal car crash. I have not been the same since!
In 1995, Doug took me to meet Pastor Albert Douglass at Upper Dublin. We then became a Christian Rock Band, playing every Sunday morning. Our band is called For The Spirit. We have recorded two audio CD's - featuring original Christian music.
I thank God for the opportunity to spread His word through music. I also thank God for my skills as a programmer. And I also want to thank God for my loving wife and daughter.
I pray that I can continue to make a difference in life, in church, at home, and at work.
Since I wrote this in 2002, I have been divorced, and later, remarried. I met the sweetest and smartest lady in the universe - named Sharon. We are living in Suburban Philadelphia, PA. I work for a trucking firm in West Chester PA, and continue to play music in the 'For the Spirit' band at Upper Dublin Lutheran Church. We are working on our 3rd CD now.
