More About Me:

Drum Major University of Delaware Blue Hen Marching Band 1991-1992

I enjoy working across the hall from my wife, Mrs. Bell, and have done so since 1996.

My primary instrument is trombone.

At home I enjoy spending time with my two rescue dogs, collecting model trains and watching Drum Corps International competitve drum corps.  I am partial to the Cadets, Carolina Crown and the Madison Scouts.

My son is currently studying music composition at Vanderbilt University.  His main interests in composition include chamber music and opera.

I enjoy cooking.
