I have been the Organist and Choir Director at Scantic Church since September of 1998. Originally from New Bedford, Massachusetts, I had been living in Connecticut for about a year when I first came to Scantic. I began playing the piano at age 4, and started my organ studies with Brian Roderick, during my junior year of high school.
My home is in Stafford Springs, Connecticut where I have lived with my son Juan and my wife Theresa for the past 5 years, until she returned to God in April of 2010. I am both a former geotechnical engineer and piano technician. I recently obtained my teaching certification in Mathematics and plan to teach in the Connecticut public schools. From September to the beginning of December, I accompany the Enfield Community Chorus, which performs at Hazardville United Methodist Church in Enfield, Connecticut, on the first weekend of December.
I believe every person has a place in the music ministry of the church; whether it be singing in the choir or the congregation or playing an instrument. I encourage everyone to use their talents to profess the Word of God.
Soli Deo Gloria!
