I was trained in a great program at UW-Milwaukee set-up exclusively for educators. I received my student teaching at the Multi-Cultural Community High School and went on to teach the next year at Wilmot Union High School in Wilmot, Wi, (near Lake Geneva), where I was chosen as "Teacher of the Year."
I've advised several student newspapers and also written numerous freelance articles and done photographs as well for The Milwaukee Journal, The Milwaukee Sentinel, Vintage Guitar Magazine, Acoustic Guitar Magazine and so forth. My love for music in general and guitar in particular has led me to giving many private lessons on a regular basis and I've also taught lots of sections of guitar classes at high schools. I've headed four truly exciting expeditions to the blues sites, working studios and roadhouses located in Memphis, Tn and Clarksdale, Ms.
Besides these things I've also taught Creative Writing and Composition at UW-Parkside in Kenosha, Wi and even portrait photography at Carthage College, located along the shores of Lake Michigan!
