Welcome to my web site! I hope this site will give you a peek into who I am so that you can get to know me better. As some of you already know I just love to dance, both squares and rounds, and really love to call. It’s so exciting and challenging for me to come and help entertain square dancers whenever I can. Let me first give a brief life story.
Music has always been a big part of my life, starting with 10 years of piano and 7 years of clarinet lessons as a child. I then went on to major in music at Ball State University and was going to teach, which didn’t quite work out. To earn a living I have spent the last 25 years as an EDI systems analyst in Indianapolis. My wife Deb and I had two wonderful children that are both married and live in the area.
Deb and I were high school sweethearts and were married in May of 1974 and had been dancing squares for about a year. We continued until Angie came along, but swore we would eventually return to dancing. I had the ‘caller’ bug back then, but didn’t follow thru with it. After about 3 weeks of lessons back in 2003, I got the bug again.
I am currently the club caller/cuer for the Riley Wranglers in Cumberland, and the Tuesday 10-12 group in McCordsville.
Something new I've added is I am now cueing round dances. I bought the record collection of a cuer that retired and am working hard at being able to cue rounds. Currently I have over 400 rounds dances, phase II through IV that I can cue and am adding to my repertoire every week. I have found that I really enjoy cueing almost as much as calling!
If you are having a dance, or event that needs a caller or cuer, you might check my ‘Events’ page and see if I am available, then either send an e-mail, or call me!
