About Me

Atlanta, GA, United States
When I suffered a lip injury that ended my career as a classical trombonist, I thought my life as a musician was finished, but I fell in love with music all over again when Santa gave me a guitar for Christmas in 2003. Even as I was struggling with my first chords, I was planning a new performance career. As a trombonist, I performed with the Heritage of America Band at Langley Air Force Base, the Ohio Light Opera, and in pick-up bands for touring acts that included Rosemary Clooney, George Burns, and the Manhattan Transfer. Reborn as a jazz guitarist, I sing and play my own solo arrangements of jazz classics, am half of the Godfrey and Guy duo, and hold the guitar chair in the Sentimental Journey Orchestra. I have been a freelance music copyist since 1995, served as Director of Music at Northwest Unitarian Universalist Congregation from 2011 to 2017, and currently serve as Contemporary Band Director at the same congregation.

UUMN 2015 Conference, July 21

Tomorrow morning, I'm leaving for my third UUMN conference (Unitarian Universalist Musicians Network). Being a last minute packer, I just packed my suitcase. I'm traveling light this year, with just a carry-on and my Traveler guitar.

I'll be blogging about the conference from day to day, partially as a way to share my experience, and partially as a way to take notes and remember all I'll learn.

Tomorrow is a travel day with a meet and greet in the evening. I'm flying from Atlanta to Boston, which is a relatively short flight – much shorter than the trip to San Diego last year. I enjoyed San Diego, and I'm equally excited about Boston, partly because I'll be in the same time zone!

I'm looking forward to this conference, and I can't wait to share it with you. Stay tuned!
