What is your favorite piece of music?  Emotional Weather Report - Tom Waits, Bruckner 7, Richard Strauss Horn Concerto no. 2

What is your favorite QCSO memory? Bruckner 9, Mahler 2 and Beethoven 3. Great Colleagues, inspiring music and the orchestra reaching new heights!

What is a fact about you that our QCSO audiences might find surprising? I serve as the Orchestra's Players Committee Chair. I own a Harley Davidson and am an avid motorcyclist. I also have a passion for sumo wrestling. 

Away from the orchestra, where might the QCSO audience find you? Downtime in QC typically involves coffee, a sandiwch from Capriottis or a trip to Smokey's Country Diner in East Moline. I also enjoy spending time in Vander Veer Park.
