After 52 years of winters in the Chicago suburbs, he moved to Palm Springs with his husband, Keith, in 2013.

Starting in 2000, he sang a total of 12 years with Windy City Gay Chorus and The Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus. Since moving to the Desert, he has performed in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and The Addams Family, both with College of the Desert at the McCallum and sings with Modern Men: Coachella Valley Men’s Chorus. He is honored to be a part of A Cabbello because small vocal ensembles are his passion
