I'm a self taught thereminist who enjoys playing the theremin in a classical style, but I enjoy other genres. I started playing the theremin in July of 2006.
In 2004, I started singing first tenor with the Jackson Choral Society. At right, I'm seen here singing with the Jackson Choral Society in 2006 at the First Baptist Church in Jackson, Mississippi.
I've performed with the Magnolia Chorus, Jackson chaptor of Society for Preservation, and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America (S P E B S Q S A), as well as the Mississippi Opera Chorus sinse the mid 1980s.
I studied music at Hinds Junior (community) College in 1986.
In the late 70s, I performed with the Biloxi Opera Theater untill the early 80s.
In the early 1970s, I started playing the violin at the age of 8, and the flute at about 12 years of age.
In the late 1980s, I started learning how to make holograms. In 1991 I attended a two week workshop in holographic imaging at Lake Forest University in Chicago. I have performed holographic demonstrations at St Andrews School, as well as the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, Mississippi. I made holograms up untill the late 1990s.
