Composer

I am a composer, having written many pieces of sacred music for organ, organ and solo instrument, and choral works. My compositions have been used by many organists in churches in the Omaha area and are written primarily for the busy church organist. My compositions are in the easy to medium difficulty range and include many short hymn-tune based pieces, as well as a complete Mass setting for the Episcopal liturgy, “Mass for St. Augustine.”

I have been an organist in many churches in the Omaha area and is currently serving St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church in Elkhorn, Nebraska. I have studied organ, piano, and theory while completing my degree of Master of Music at the University of South Dakota.

My published works include “Aus Tiefer, Not,” a Lenten setting for organ and trumpet, published by Organist Companion, a journal of organ music (January 2008). The organ solo Holy Manna was published in the July 2016 edition of Organist Companion.
