I am a trained musician. I play piano,Baritone,valve trombone,Tuba, bull fiddle and electric bass. I played in jr/hs bands and orcestras. I also played in district and state bands. I sang in district choruses, The meistrosingers in HS. I sang in the VFMC Chapel choir.I played in the VFMC regimental band.I was a US Navy Musician blowing bass and tuba with the best profesional muscians in UB 182 and the San Diego traing center band. After my Navy service, I played with Jazz bands and combos in California. I also played with Red Norval when he came to San Diego in the "60"s. I love Big Band, Jazz, Dixie and clasical music. I blow a mean walking bass and a cool jazz tuba. ( well at least I did A Few Gallons of water under the bridge ago) Not in former character, I shifted into Law enforcement and served with local, state and Federal agencies, retiring as a Federal Chief of Police. I now reflect upon musician friends, musical triumphs and fond memories of those people I have met over all these years. It is a wonderful way I have tread my way through my time. I hope that my dreams and my music is my eternity.
